Ayariga suggested minority should walk out during passage of E-Levy – Dr Ayine

Ayine says his position was for Assin North MP to participate in the democratic

I experienced some kind of hysteria on my position as a result of the chance of Assin North MP going to prison - MP President Akufo-Addo consents E-Levy Bill

Bolgatanga East MP, Dr Dominic Ayine, has unveiled that the choice by the minority to leave parliament during the section of the E-Levey Bill was an idea of MP for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga.

As per Dr Ayine, despite the fact that he embraced the idea of the Bawku Central MP (Member of Parliament), his position was that Assin North MP James Gyakye Quayson, who has been banned from holding himself as a MP, be permitted by the initiative of the minority assembly to partake in the decision on the E-Levy Bill.

Dr Ayine, who expressed this in a JoyNews interview checked by GhanaWeb on March 30, 2022, demonstrated that he suffered from sudden anxiety on his position since some party people said Gyakye Quayson's vote could later be struck out in court, or he could be detained for hatred of court.

"All things considered, my position was unique; my position was that we ought to acquire the Assin North MP in the democratic … for my purposes, the lawful cycles up until this point didn't fill in as a bar to the individual from parliament.

"Yet, I likewise understood that the NPP could do one thing which I expected, which is to have a problem with his partaking, go to court and say that his vote is unlawful, reference that vote and take it, which implied that we would be short by one part obviously, as far as the political optics I was willing and pushing for that point.

"… until another politico-lawful procedure was brought into play by the Hon. Mahama Ayariga and that was a strategic move that we ought to leave the chamber and deny the NPP of the numbers required for majority, and I embraced that position since it mirrored the genuine place of the high court choice in Justice Abdullai and Attorney general case," he said.

Be that as it may, the system of the minority council seems not to have worked in light of the fact that the bill was passed with just the larger part gathering present in parliament.

The minority council, drove by three MPs, including Mahama Ayariga, Tamale Central MP Haruna Iddrisu and North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has documented a suit at the Supreme Court, requesting that the court pronounce the endorsement of the e-demand invalid and void since there was no majority for the choice to be taken.

Present Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has consented to the E-Levy Bill, which has made it a regulation, regardless of the forthcoming decision of the Supreme Court working on it recorded by the minority assembly.
