Communications Member of the largest opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Hamza Shayibu Suhuyini, has waded into the ongoing confusion over the approval of some ministerial nominees on Wednesday night in parliament.
This comes after Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer on Thursday, 4th March berated the NDC leadership in parliament including Speaker of the House for betraying the party for their selfish and parochial interest.
Mr Gyamfi also called for an immediate shakeup in the leadership indicating that Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu and Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarick have lost the moral right to sit in the front bench.
The approval of Information Minister Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, Minister for Frishress and Aquaculture Mavis Hawa Koomson and Minister for Food and Agriculture, Dr Owusu Akoto-Afriyie did not go down well with rank and file of the NDC which has resulted in a varied attacks on the minority MPs.
Commenting on the development in a Facebook post sighted by TamaleOnline News, Mr Hamza Suhuyini called for calm amongst the teaming supporters of the party.
According to him, the party lost the support its late Founder and Former President JJ Rawlings and his wife Nana Kunado in similar circumstances.
“In 2009, it started like joke and we lost Rawlings and Konadu at the back of that and several others followed. We became less and our opponents became more,” he stated.
Mr Suhuyini who is a younger brother of Tamale North MP, Alhassan Suhuyini stressed it is imperative not to lose members at this critical moment when the party needs to stand strong against their opponents.
“We can’t afford to lose more any time we are tested. We must be tired of losing each other at this stage. I don’t want to be next …so it must stop,” Mr Hamza Suhuyini concluded.
