The most used word on social media after Tracey Boakye’s digital banter with Mzbel, “PAPA NO” has been introduced to the floor of Parliament by the Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and that has got the Minority angry.
The Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in his submission while the house was debating on the 1billion Dollars minerals royalties agreement in explaining himself used the word ‘Papa no’
He said while responding to a colleague from the Minority’s submission that “Mr. Speaker, I want to encourage our colleagues on the other side, I want to encourage my good friend who just spoke. In my home town, we will say PAPA NO. I want to encourage PAPA NO to take some time and follow the structure of this conversation. I thank you, Mr. Speaker, for the opportunity”.
But his submission did not sit down well with the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, who asked the Information Minister to withdraw the name he used because it has become a jargon linked with something happening on social media or the Minority will also toe the same line.
“In your rulings, there are many names you will come across from today, some we will dedicate to some and there are many names. Mr. Speaker I know you will not encourage us to do so because I will receive confort in hausa, Dagbane, Grushie or Nakani to use words that are acceptable. And to come to Parliament and employ those words used on social media we take strong objection to it. If you don’t withdraw, we won’t recognize you today as Minister. From today we won’t recognize you as a Minister and we will not accord you any respect. What do you mean? What do you take us for? Papa No yes accepted but from today we will give you a mail. He was a member just like you and his constituents respect him. You, people, use Papa No on social media, we know what it means. You have lost my respect as Minority Leader from Today. We will march with you,” Hon. Haruna Iddrisu said.
Actress Tracey Boakye’s daughter is alleged to be the daughter of NDC Flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.
The Actress who refers to the father of the daughter as “Papa No” has made the word popular on the various social media platforms after her outburst on Mzbel because she had snatched her [Mzbel’s] man and was making good use of him to amass wealth.http://wwws.erosfm.com
