John Dumelo has asked Lydia Alhassan to render an unqualified apology to him after she insulted his intelligence.
Maa Lydia, who is seeking reelection described Dumelo, an aspiring candidate for Ayawaso West Wuogon on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a shallow thinker for not seeking permission from the Assembly before planning to dredge gutters in the Ayawaso West Wuogon municipality.
She made this comment at a debate held by 3FM Friday, November 27, 2020.
Dumelo who got infuriated by the comment wondered why Lydia Alhassan could rain insults on him after showing up at the debate grounds over 2 hours late.
According to him, the MP has to be time conscious and be well-composed if she wants to debate him.
“I don’t call this a debate because if you want to debate, you come on time. I came here at 8:30am, that was the time they gave me. You cannot come here at 10:45am and say you want to debate me, that is not how a Member of Parliament behaves and then you come here too to insult me… it is not right…and you must apologise,” he said.
You came 2 hours late to a debate and used your 15mins allocation to say I don’t have sense? I’m impressed….. pic.twitter.com/wdwidunv6c
