- A second NPP legislator has been caught driving in the middle of the road to beat traffic
- The MP for Tarkwa Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker failed to stop after breaking the traffic law with impunity
- He was given a hot chase after which he was stopped and eventually processed for court
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tarkwa Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker, has become the latest legislator to be arrested for traffic offence.
The MP was nabbed in Citi TV’s ongoing War Against Indiscipline campaign after he drove in the middle of the road in an attempt to beat traffic.
Mr. Duker failed to stop when Police caught him flouting road traffic rules on the Spintex Road on Monday, July 8.
He was, however, forced to stop after the police gave him a hot chase.
Having finally been arrested, the Tarkwah Nsuaem legislator has been processed for court.
The MP was driving a 4×4 vehicle with registration number WR 1900-17 when he was arrested for the traffic offence.
This comes after the MP for Kade, Kwabena Ohemeng Tinyaase, was also caught disregarding road traffic laws last week.
The lawmaker was incensed by the arrest of his driver, insisting he should be allowed to go because he‘s going to perform a duty in the “national interest”.
However, the police stamped their authority and arrested his driver, who was eventually fined GHS 960. after appearing before a court.
