Minority reshuffle: Tamale South NDC angry over Haruna’s removal

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Chairman for Tamale South Constituency, Alhaji Rauf Sulemana, has accused the leadership of the party of trying to bring division into the party.

This comment is in line with the changes in the party’s leadership in Parliament.

The leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) made some changes in its leadership in Parliament yesterday, January 24th, 2023.

Haruna Iddrisu has been replaced by Ato Forson as Minority Leader.

A letter signed by General Secretary, Fifi Kwetey, mentioned that Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson will be assisted by Mr. Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah as Deputy Minority Leader.

In effect, Mr. James Klutse Avedzi, the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee, is no longer the Deputy Minority Leader.

Mr Kwame Agbodza replaces Muntaka Mubarak as Minority Whip.

The First Deputy Whip remains Mr Ibrahim Ahmed and the Second Deputy Whip remains Comfort Doyoe Ghansah.

“New leadership would be charged to recommend consequential changes in the Ranking membership to the headquarters of the party for approval,” the statement from the NDC said.

Following the announcement of the reshuffle, some party supporters took to social media to accuse some party members of being behind the reshuffle.

In an interview with host of Atinka FM’s AM Drive Kaakyire Ofori Ayim, Chairman for Tamale South Constituency Alhaji Rauf Sulemana who sounded furious accused the chairman of the Party, Johnson Aseidu Nketia of trying to sideline Dagomba’s in the party.

“The reshuffle is a bad decision. Who reshuffle’s a leader at this point. I believe Aseidu Nketia has something against Muslims hence the removal of both Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak from the minority leadership in Parliament,” Alhaji Rauf Sulemana added.

In a similar development, the New Patriotic Party’s 2020 parliamentary candidate for the Akwatia constituency in the Eastern Region, Ernest Kumi has described the NDC’s reshuffle in Parliament as undemocratic and against the progress of the party.
