- Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa has described the British High Commissioner to Ghana as a colonialist
- Jon Benjamin had earlier released a letter barring some Ghanaian MP from the UK
There is fire on the mountain and it seems Jon Benjamin and Samuel Okudzeto are the one going to keep it it aflame.
According to Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Member of Parliament for the North Tongu constituency, Jon Benjamin thinks like a "colonial master".
Jon Benjamin, the British High Commissioner to Ghana has been in the media for the past few days.
And this doesn't seem to have gone down well with the National Democratic Congress' Samuel Okudzeto.
In a letter replying to Benjamin's letter, Okudzeto held no words back as he called Jon Benjamin out for what he called a "colonial mindset".
Hon. Ablakwa could not fathom why the HC Jon Benjamin will send such a disrespectful letter to the Parliament of Ghana.
"Quite clearly, to Mr. Jon Benjamin, issuing visas to Ghanaian MPs is such a great favour and a reward for good group behaviour. Therefore, because three sitting MPs may have misconducted themselves, all 275 MPs must now face the Head Master's (if not the colonial Governor's) wrath and sanctions. Such utter disrespect for our Parliament and our country regardless is most unacceptable."
3 MPs, Richard Acheampong, MP for Bia East in the Western Region; Joseph Benhazin Dahah, MP for Asutifi North (Ntotroso) in the Brong Ahafo Region; Johnson Kwaku Adu, MP for Ahafo Ano South West in the Ashanti Region; and George Boakye, former MP for Asunafo South in the Brong Ahafo Region were involved in Visa Fraud and have therefore been banned from the UK.

Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa stated that Jon Benjamin is a colonialist at heart who sees Ghanaians as less than him.
"If this is Mr. Benjamin's mindset even in dealing with the people's representatives, then one can begin to wonder how he treats the applications of the people of Ghana", he said in his letter.
