North Tongu Member of Parliament, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has charged Paul Adom-Otchere, host of the Good Evening Ghana show, to investigate claims of partisan food distribution first before he crucifies Klottey-Korle, Dr. Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings.

Paul Adom Otchere in an editorial on his late-night show attacked Dr. Agyemang-Rawlings for accusing the governing New Patriotic Party of distributing food reliefs on a partisan basis.

Warning her to stop misbehaving and learn from her parents, Mr. Adom Otchere said Dr. Zanetor Agyemang-Rawlings could have consulted the Gender Minister first before waging into ‘unsubstantiated allegations’ over the distribution of food to the poor and vulnerable within her constituency.

“Are you learning something; that as an Honourable Member of Parliament, before you speak to the press, you must confront the allegation with the authority…you confront the allegation because you have position…you have power, you have an influence…you are an elected Member of Parliament, you ought to be listened to by the authorities,” he said.

“Let it get into your system Dr. Rawlings, you come from a privileged home. Behave properly, stop misbehaving…Look at your mother, look at Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, look at her public conduct for 25 years, you should learn from that. It’s very easy to learn from that. I mean, even I who she’s not my mother I learn from it. Other people, who she’s not their mother they learn from it. You, you’re sitting down there, you can’t learn from it? And you come and issue baseless statements like this and you don’t even know that you’re shooting yourself in the foot?… You have heritage at home to learn from,” Adom-Otchere continued.

Reacting to Paul Adom-Otchere’s editorial after the show in a tweet, Mr. Okudzeto Ablakwa said: “Before crucifying Dr. Zanetor Agyeman-Rawlings, shouldn’t we at the very least be interested in independently investigating the widespread claims she and many others including MPs and the general public have made about partisanship in the distribution of food to the vulnerable?”
