The immediate past Rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei seems to have bitten off more than he can chew with his recent comment concerning Ghanaian legislators.

The Professor who was addressing guests at the 40th anniversary celebration of the SAPs school in Accra said some MPs shamefully go to the extent of demanding additional bribes to cater for their girlfriends.

Professor Adei also alleged that “at least 8 in 10 politicians in Ghana are glorified thieves although almost every need of theirs is met by the state; we have to stop it”

However, this comments have angered most of the Members of Parliament (MP) including K. T Hammond who feels the Professor should have known better.

“That is a very annoying and very foolish statement… How can any responsible person talk like that? He must know the legal implications of this matter. He is a professor. I expect him to know better. His statements are scandalous"- Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa constituency, K.T Hammond.

Speaking in an interview on Citi FM, the Member of Parliament for Adansi Asokwa constituency said “I am very angry; you cannot just go around denigrating the image of Parliament like that. It is shameful for the professor to have said that. He should come back and let the world know that he was misguided in the statement that he made. The professor should come clean else the matter will boil and boil…How can any responsible person talk like that? He must know the legal implications of this matter. He is a professor. I expect him to know better. His statements are scandalous"

K. T. Hammond who feels Prof Adei overstepped his boundaries also indicated that even though the constitution gives everyone the right of speech "it is also the case that your right terminates at the place where my right begins. The Professor has completely overstepped his boundaries, … and I think he will have to meet us in Parliament to point to us those who are thieves, those who are criminals and the basis of those very very serious allegations.”
