VIDEO: The Near-Fight Between Carlos Ahenkorah and Ablakwa

Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry, Carlos Ahenkorah, on Tuesday locked horns with the Minority Spokesperson on Foreign Affairs, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwah in Parliament over alleged money charged expatriates who sat beside the President during the recent Ghana Expatriates Business Awards.

The near fisticuff occurred after the two met in a media interview on the matter, Tuesday, outside Parliament.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini who took Mr Ablakwah from the scene to avoid a 'full-blown' fight in an interview on Class FM, narrated how everything happened:

“I was stepping out of the chamber when I noticed that Honourable Ablakwah was addressing the press. From a distance I saw that Carlos Ahenkorah was throwing his hands and throwing a lot of tantrums. So I got attracted to the scene to find out what was going on

All along when Mr Ablakwa was speaking to the press, he (Mr Ahenkorah) kept interjecting and insulting and making all kinds of allegations that were so unrelated to the topic that he (Mr Ablakwah) was speaking on.

When he (Mr Ablakwah) finished and was turning away then he (Mr Ahenkorah) grabbed him and said he (Mr Ablakwah) should stay and listen to his response so that he won’t reply again. That was when Ablakwa said he takes exception to the adjectives that he was using on him and it almost degenerated at that point. But I held Honourable Ablakwa and asked him to move away because I thought that Carlos was disgracing himself"
