The Leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has announced it has made changes in its leadership in Ghana’s Parliament.
This massive shake-up sees Minority leader, and Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale South, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu, and his deputy, Mr. James Klutse Avedzi make way for Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson and Emmanuel Kofi Armah Boah as the new minority leader and his deputy.
A statement circulating on social media and signed by NDC General Secretary, Mr. Fifi Fiavi Kwetey says Mr. Kwame Agbodza becomes the Chief Whip for the opposition side, replacing Muntaka Mohammed-Mubarak, and will be deputised by Banda MP, Mr. Ahmed Ibrahim, and Ada lawmaker, Madam Comfort Doyo Ghansah respectively.
The party has, therefore, charged the new leadership to recommend consequential changes in the Ranking membership to the Headquarters of the party for approval but fell short of explaining the rationale behind the changes.
Some NDC MPs are, however, incensed by the situation and described it as a ‘coup d’etat.’
