Dafeamekpor sends a message to the NDC about Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak

Please share your comments on the question asked below. Thank you!

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) may have been on level pegging with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in parliament just that the addition of the independent MP has given the NPP a slight majority. The NDC upon realizing that they are not outnumbered in Parliament wants to prove stubborn but their effort have for now proven futile.

It started from Sammy Gyamfi's unmeasured comments against the leadership of the minority caucus (Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak) and also the Speaker of Parliament Alban Kingsford Bagbin after the approval three ministerial nominees of President Nana Akufo-Addo when the NDC leadership had directed that those three be rejected due to the parochial interest of the party.

Just recently, Ken Ofori Atta was also unanimously approved by the minority caucus. The approval of Ken Ofori Atta has brought about commotion in the NDC. Some concerned NDC leaders have questioned the leadership of Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak after the approval of Ken Ofori Atta.

Some are also calling that Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak should be removed from parliament as the Minority leader and Chief Whip respectively. The resignation of the lawmaker for North Tongu Constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has worsened the issue. The resignation of Okudzeto is believed to be based on the loss of confidence in the minority caucus leadership.

But Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, legislator for South Dayi Constituency on the ticket of the NDC insists it would be disastrous for the NDC to remove the current leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) side in parliament. To him, Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak are the right people to face NPP's Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu and Alexander Afenyo Markin.

The South Dayi lawmaker said in a tweet that Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka Mubarak remain the most potent strikers to battle Osei Kyei-Mensah and Afenyo-Markin in parliament so removing or shifting them would damage the party and bring the party to an end. He further noted that they survived Agyarko bribery accusations 4 years ago and they will survive this too.

Dear cherished reader, what do you make of Dafeamekpor's advice to the NDC concerning the removal of Haruna Iddrisu and Muntaka?
