Majority Deceived Us By Opposing The Removal of Ofori-Atta: Haruna Iddrisu
Haruna Iddrisu, the leader of the minority in parliament, has expressed dissatisfaction over the decision of the majority to not assist the minority in the impeachment of Ken Ofori-Atta, the finance minister.
He claimed that despite the majority’s failure to support them, the minority would still pursue the censorship motion.
The member of parliament made these claims while addressing the media in parliament.
In addition, Hon. Haruna Iddrisu also iterated that President Akufo-Addo has made it clear that he does not value the views of the general populace.
On that note, he iterated as follows:
“…President Akufo-Addo will go down in history under the fourth republic as the president who most disrespected public opinion because as far as we are concerned public opinion is not supportive and favorable to the continuous stay in office of Ken Ofori-Atta.
We feel led down and we feel betrayed by the majority caucus who have shown no wits in supporting us with our impeachment process within the letter and spirit of Article 82 of the 1992 constitution we are not abandoning our censorship motion.”
Meanwhile, The embattled Minister of Finance Ken Ofori-Atta’s 2023 budget Statement won’t be attended by the Majority Caucus of Parliament, as originally planned.
“The Majority Caucus, the Party Leadership, and the Council of Elders met this evening, November 22, 2022, and decided to refocus and recline to the earlier position requested by the President,” a statement that was co-signed by Majority Chief Whip Frank Annoh-Dompreh and NPP General Secretary Justin Kodua Frimpong read.
