The former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini, has described as surprising the leadership changes by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in Parliament.
Mr Fuseini believes the unexpected changes are part of a grand strategy by the party ahead of the 2024 general elections.
Speaking to Citi News, Mr Fuseini said the new leadership will need the loyalty and support of all Members of Parliament to succeed.
“I received this with surprise, I had no inkling that it was coming. In the past, I said we needed to be cautious when people called for changes in the leadership. I know that the party is strategically positioned for elections in 2024, and I don’t know that as part of the strategy, this is part of the strategic considerations for 2024 and beyond.
“They will need the general support and cooperation of their members. I have no doubt that he [Ato Forson] has discharged himself well not only among the minority members but by the majority as well.”
The National Democratic Congress made a sweeping changes to the leadership in a letter sent to the speaker.
While some members of the party has expressed their satisfaction, some members believe this will not inure to the benefit of the party.
