How Twitter users reacted to Abuga Pele, Assibit's conviction
Well, it's no more news that former Paga Chiana Member of Parliament, Abuga Pele has been sentenced to six years in prison while Philip Assibi a businessman has also been given twelve years for their involvement in the much talked about GYEEDA scandal.
Now like expected, Twitter users will not let the issue rest and have taken an angle which was actually expected of them.
Twitter users have blamed the jail term on the fact that Martin Amidu has been sworn in and that was used as a welcome for him.
See how Twitter users reacted to the jail term handed to the two.

A young man steals a bunch of plantain & gets 3-5yrs jail time.
Abuga Pele & co steals Ghc4.1m & only gets 6 & 12yrs jail time, respectively..?
Mitigation plea by lawyer for Assibit: that the prisons are full & his client is a chief & an entrepreneur who has "unnumbered children"! Advise him to undergo Vasectomy instead! Utter nonsense! #Corruption @OccupyGH @CWGhana @THEKojoYanksonhttps://t.co/SlqTlfkJL5— Kwaku Antwi-Boasiako (@ABKwaku) February 23, 2018
