Member of Parliament for Afigya Kwabre North Constituency, Collins Adomako-Mensah, has lauded the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for swiftly resolving the recent misunderstanding in the party following the change in Minority’s leadership in Parliament.
Mr. Adomako-Mensah was full of praise for the ranks and file of the party for intervening to address the issue amicably. “The way and manner they have managed these past weeks. It hasn’t been easy. This very past week has been very turbulent for the NDC. I’m just hoping that what we are seeing is not just the face of it and that they have taken care of the undertones that characterized these few two weeks,” the Afigya Kwabre North MP said on Metro TV on Wednesday, February 8, 2023.
During his submission on the Good Morning Ghana programme on Metro TV which airs on weekdays between 7:30 am – 10 am and hosted by Dr. Randy Abbey, the NPP legislator indicated that for Ghana’s democracy to strive a strong opposition is needed to put the governing party on its toes.
“We need a strong opposition to push the democratic agenda forward,” Mr. Adomako-Mensah.
A statement signed by the party’s General Secretary, Fifi Kwetey, on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, announced Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson as the new Minority Leader with Emmanuel Kofi-Armah Buah as the Deputy Minority Leader.
MP for Adaklu, Governs Kwame Agbodza was also named as the party’s new Minority Chief Whip, taking over from Asawase MP, Muntaka Mubarak.
This development has since been met with a lot of resentment from some quarters of the party, including Tamale Central MP, Murtala Mohammed who has questioned the timing and relevance of the change.
