Madina MP Francis-Xavier Sosu has thrown vulgar words the way of the Nana Akufo-Addo administration, blaming the government for debilitating hardship in the country.
Engaging journalists briefly during the OccupyBoG demonstrations, the Madina MP descended to the gutter and used unprintable invectives akin to traditional Ga fishing communities.
Portions of the strong words in Ga language captured on a viral video that YEN.com.gh has sighted goes as follows:
"If not for the fact that I am an MP, I would have said their mothers'...[insulting words pertaining to a woman's private parts]...why are they making suffer like that? They should get away, we've had enough of them..."
The mammoth OccupyBoG demonstration on Tuesday, October 3, 2023, has been organised by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), pressure group AriseGhana, some smaller political parties and other civil society groups to demand the resignation of the Bank of Ghana Governor, Dr Ernest Addison, and his deputies.
The protests have been triggered by a loss of 60.8 billion cedi recorded by the BoG in the 2022 fiscal year and the use of over 250 million dollars for the construction of a new headquarters.
