A former appointee of government, Jones Sarfo Anyamesem has suggested Haruna Iddrisu’s removal from leadership role in Parliament on the side of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is a punishment.
The NPP man who is a former NABCO coordinator, claims his refusal to throw his support behind Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketiah candidature in that party’s National Election last month is to prove to him and others that the General Mosquito as affectionately called is now at the helm of the party.
He was speaking on Kumasi-based Ultimate Fm monitored by MyNewsGh.com
“You see, I don’t belong to NDC but any politician will like Haruna in their party. He knows his trade and has acquitted himself with his team. He has created history in Ghana by together with his group creating a hung parliament”
“How do you remove such a person and replace him with losers who we don’t know their track record in the house? Haruna is just being punished for not openly supporting Asiedu Nketia period”, he claimed.
The NDC has changed its leadership in Parliament replacing Haruna Iddrisu with Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson as the Minority leader.
The changes have been met with some opposition from grassroots members where as some leading members believe it was unnecessary.
