NDC MP for Madina, Francis-Xavier Sosu, has apologised for using vulgar words against the Nana Akufo-Addo-led administration during the OccupyBoG demonstration on October 3, 2023.
According to him, in hindsight, the words were in poor taste, unsavoury and unbecoming of a man with his social standing.
In an interview on GHOne TV on Wednesday, October 4, he explained that he blurted out the invectives because he was consumed by anger and frustration towards what he described as rot at the Bank of Ghana.
" I take full responsibility [for] those statements and I believe that they were not in good taste and I respectfully take them back, and sincerely apologise to many, many people who feel disappointed," he said.
Vulgar words thrown at Akufo-Addo administration
The Madina MP threw unprintable 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 unsavoury invectives akin to traditional Ga fishing communities.
"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..." he blurted out in Ghana.
His comments were criticised on social media as disappointing.
The demonstration on Tuesday was to compel the BoG Governor to resign over losses in 2022, among other reasons.
Meanwhile, the opposition NDC legislator has issued an official statement of apology for his utterances during the demonstration.
