Member of Parliament for Tarkwa-Nsuaem, George Mireku Duker has expressed regrets over a fight between him and New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Regional Secretary for Western Region, Charles Bissue.
According to him, although he acted in self defense against a fuming Bissue, he acknowledged that it was not befitting of him as an MP to engage in violence.
“My supporters and the party people know I’m not violent. I have never fought before but I couldn’t sit there and watch someone beat me. The laws of the country allow us to defend ourselves under certain conditions.
“I did not insult him and even if I did, he wouldn’t have heard from where I sat. He threw the first punch saying that I will beat you. We got angry and fought but I regret it. I want to say sorry to everyone. It hurts me that this happened. I’m so sorry. I never thought Bissue would do that but I really regret it,” he said.
