North Tongu Member of Parliament Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa is calling on Ghanaians especially National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters to trust their NDC representatives (MPs) in Parliament, because, they have a conscience, and know that the real power belongs to them.

According to Mr. Ablakwa, going by the Supreme Court’s decision on the recent rulling on Justice Abdulai case, the E-Levy Bill has not been passed.

He explained that, what transpired today is a ridiculous nullity.

In statement, he said, you [NPP] thought we [NDC] will give them the pleasure of returning to court for a declaration that the Assin North MP shouldn’t have been present in the Chamber to vote so that you [NPP] can claim a 137-136 victory for the E-Levy.
