Oti Bless says sorry to Chief Justice

Member of Parliament for Nkwanta North, John Oti Bless has apologised to the Chief Justice for abusing her verbally and impugning she was doing the bidding of the NPP.

His apology comes on the back of a direction by the Speaker of Parliament Edward Doe Adjaho.

Mr Oti Bless has had his approval as a minister withheld by the House after a tape recording exposed his verbal attacks on Mrs Theodora Georgina Wood on Montie FM.

But in an exclusive interview with Citi FM Friday, the MP said: “I wish to state sincerely that I am really sorry for everything that has happened. Let me use this opportunity to render an unqualified apology to the Chief Justice who is my mother and the entire Judiciary, judges, Parliament, good people of Ghana and my constituents".

He added: “I am really sorry, and this will be the last time, It’s an experience. I have had my first baptism in politics. I thank the Speaker for his advice, the Minority Leader, my leader, Alban Bagbin – he’s a wonderful leader, he’s done a lot for me, and gave me guidance – and all the other leaders in Parliament. I also thank all Ghanaians for their sympathy and understanding".

Meanwhile, his approval still awaits what the House will do next.
