Casely-Hayford, known activists with OccupyGhana and a social commentator, is accused of launching a scathing attack on the integrity of parliament.

Veteran Journalist Kweku Baako Jr has defended Sydney Casely-Hayford, as “a good” who “really loves the country,” after he was cited for contempt of parliament.

Casely-Hayford, known activists with OccupyGhana and a social commentator, is accused of launching a scathing attack on the integrity of parliament.

He said at a summit on “The Economic and Political Rise of Africa” that Ghana would have been better off without parliament.

He said: “These people are sitting there, spending money like crazy, making stupid decisions, and passing stupid laws.

“They don’t read the papers that they are given, they don’t think through what the challenges are…The first thing I will do if I had the opportunity is to break down Parliament. We don’t need it.

“Maybe if we break it down we are wasting money but maybe we can use it as a tourist attraction, we can say, this is what we used to do in the past, so come for a tour and then we should just poster it all so people can see.”

Speaking Saturday on Joy FM’s news analysis show, Mr Baako said “He is a good guy. He really loves the country. He has passion for Ghana.”

He, however, condemned Casely-Hayford's comments as a “rabid attempt to attack parliament.”

He also urged parliament to drop the contempt of parliament charge against the him.

“I have been cited for contempt of Parliament before. I was like that parliament’s term elapsed,” he said. “Instinctively I will suggest parliament should ignore.”
