Mr. Barton Odro , the Deputy Speaker and Ghana’s Member of Parliament (MP) of Cape Coast, who upbraided Ghana’s Supreme Court for ruling against Mr. Agbeyisi Woyome in the infamous 51.2 million Ghanaian cedis judgment debt saga has come under pressure to resign.

The calls for his resignation stem from comments he made on a local radio station in Cape Coast in the aftermath of the Supreme Court’s Decision.

The MP when voicing his opinion during the radio interview categorically stated that the Government of Ghana did not have a case against the businessman and party financier Mr Agbeyisi Woyome who had been found guilty of receiving the money out of an invalid and unconstitutional contract.

he MP of Cape Coast who incurred the displeasure of some Ghanaians and pressure groups as a result of his comments has been branded as clueless and out of touch with the plight of the everyday Ghanaian.

David Apinyah Ato Sam, a member of Ghana’s leading opposition party the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who is spearheading the campaign for Barton Odro to resign has expressed concerns that the failure of the Deputy Speaker to abdicate his position might influence and probably hinder attempts by the government to retrieve the money from Mr. Woyome.

The honorable MP is yet to respond to the calls for his resignation and the criticism made against him..
