The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, has once again provided justification for the party’s decision to change the Minority leadership in Parliament.
Speaking during a Press Conference in the United Kingdom, Asiedu Nketiah said that the changes effected in the leadership of Parliament became necessary as the then Minority leadership was not working well together.
According to him, the New Patriotic Party’e leadership in Parliament is rather cooperating with the Speaker of the house than the National Democratic Congress leadership even though the speaker is from their side.
“Why did we struggle to get an NDC person elected as a Speaker of Parliament? There are certainly some advantages and those advantages can be tapped into when your leadership is cooperating with the Speaker. So we cannot have a situation where NPP leadership is cooperating with the Speaker, and our NDC leadership has challenges cooperating with the Speaker.”
And if you are given a party whose leadership in Parliament is not working together, what will you do, you make the changes, or you resign, and I’m not about to resign,” Mr Asiedu Nketiah said.
There are currently agitations in the National Democratic Congress following the changes made in the leadership of the party in Parliament.
According to some Party members, the change in the leadership of Parliament is in bad faith as they have the opinion that the previous leadership have done their best for the party.
