Member of Parliament for Kade, Kwabena Ohemeng Tinyaase is being trolled on social media for attempting to get away with a road traffic violation.
In a video circulating on social media, the MP is seen being stopped by officers from the Motor Transport and Traffic Department (MTTD) of the Ghana Police Service on the Legon bypass for breaking road traffic regulations.
Mr. Tinyaase is seen in the the video challenging the police with the excuse that he was in a rush to a meeting in parliament at 8:00am.
He also denied the fact that he had flouted road traffic rules saying he was working in the nation’s interest.
He demanded that he be exempted from punishment because of his status as an MP.
Ghanaians on social media have however criticized his conduct and commended the police for doing their job without fear or favour.
Some users of popular social media network twitter forcefully expressed the opinion that no one was above the law and that everyone was working in the interest of the nation.
