National Chairman for the National Democracy Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has cleared the air on the removal of Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak as the Minority Leader and Minority Chief Whip, respectively.
He says contrary to public speculations, the decision has nothing to do with the performances of the two.
Rather, “what it has to do with is the changing environment, the changing times and the changing field,” he said in an interview with JoyNews monitored by The Independent Ghana on Tuesday, January 24, 2023, the day both persons were relieved of their posts.
The Tamale South MP, Haruna Iddrisu, is no longer the leader of the Minority Caucus in parliament. Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, has also been relieved of his position.
According to a letter from the NDC to the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin, announcing the decision, MP for Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam, Cassiel Ato Forson, is now Minority Leader.
The Deputy Minority Leader, James Klutse Avedzi, has also been replaced with Kofi Armah Buah.
MP for Adaklu Constituency, Kwame Governs Agbodza, is now the Minority Chief Whip, who will be assisted by Ahmed Ibrahim and Comfort Doyo-Ghansah who remain Deputy Chief Whips of the party.
