He stressed that some agreement had been reached to guard against future conflicts between the parliamentary leadership and the party leadership. AIhaji Mahama Iddrisu indicated that their cause is justified, as it seeks to protect the interest of the nation other than a partisan agenda.
"The Council and the Caucus leadership collectively agreed that the incident of 3rd March, 2021 was regrettable and unfortunate,and runs contrary to the principles and values of the party. The Caucus Leadership have since pledged to uphold the principles and values of the party in our collective bid to develop our country."
On a more important issue regarding the simmering conflict better the National leadership of the NDC party and the Minority leadership in parliament, AIhaji Mahama Iddrisu intimated that it would be right for peace to be restored. He mentioned that all other issues relating to the misunderstanding that ensued between both leadership must be resolved urgently, such that they could have a united front to hold the Akufo Addo government accountable.
"The Council urged National leadership of the party to resolve issues relating to the Caucus leadership in Parliament and called on the rank and file of the party to remain calm, and provide the needed support to our Caucus in order to hoId the A Akufo Addo government strictly to the principles of probity and accountability."
