National Democratic Congress Member of Parliament for Adentan Constituency, Kojo Adu Asare has called for the immediate removal of his party member and colleague MP, Hon. Michael Teye-Nyaunu as the Leader of Ghanaians delegation to the ECOWAS Parliament.

According to him, it is totally wrong to continue to have someone who severally speaks negatively of the President to lead Ghana’s delegation to an international gathering such as the ECOWAS Parliament.

His call for the removal of the MP, was informed by the recent comments of Hon. Teye Nyaunu, who at a meeting with some party delegates in Accra stated that President John Evans Attah was virtually blind and as such could not read any document brought to him for scrutiny at the Castle.

This is the second time the outspoken MP has made such remarks about President Mills. Before the 2008 elections Mr Nyaunu made similar allegations against Prof Mills, claiming that the President was too ill to be President and so needed to be dropped as the party’s flag bearer.

His comments drew sharp criticisms from section of the public who believed such unguarded statements were unbecoming of the Member of Parliament for Lower Manya Krobo.

Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrokoo Morning show, the Member of Parliament for Adentan Constituency, Kojo Adu -Asare took strong exception to the indiscreet comments from his colleague MP who he thought should know better and must be circumspect in his comments.

He said Teye Nyaunu, has fallen flat of what decency is all about when it comes to according the President the respect that he deserves.

“Head leads a Ghanaian delegation to an august body such as the ECOWAS Parliament’ I wonder what his comments about President Mills will be if issues about him (President) come up for discussion at the ECOWAS Parliament’’ he said.

Hon. Adu- Asare further stated that he would take his call for the removal of his colleague a step further by lobbying his other colleague MPs to call the “wayward” MP to order.
