Haruna Iddrisu, the previous Minority Leader in Parliament, has denied releasing any knowledge about the leadership transition announced by the National Democratic Congress on social media (NDC).
He claimed that he did not own those social media handles.
For the record, he stated, “I would like to state that the aforementioned Facebook and Twitter Accounts do not belong to me and that I have never held a Facebook or Twitter Account nor have I caused any such Account to be formed and maintained in my name.
In response to a post on Tuesday that read, “Never let a wishbone grow where a backbone should be,” this was stated in a statement dated January 23, 2023. I will serve my country always.
I have never used social media, in fact. I have never opened or authorized the operation of any social media account in my name. The posts and the aforementioned accounts, which claimed to be in my name, are therefore FAKE, Mr. Iddrisu emphasized.
As a result, the MP for Tamale South pleaded with the public to reject anything spoken on the two platforms.
“I therefore implore the entire public, in particular the members of our wonderful NDC Party, to treat the posts with the contempt they merit by ignoring them. The creation of the Accounts and the posts therein are merely adversaries’ attempts to stir unrest among the Party hierarchy and to damage my reputation, and they will unquestionably FAIL. I am confident that the truth will always win out in the end,” he said.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) announced a change in its parliamentary leadership on Tuesday. The Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak and Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, both of whom have close to 20 years of parliamentary experience, were replaced as the Caucus’ leaders.
Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson was named the new minority leader, while Emmanuel Kofi-Armah Buah was named the deputy minority leader, according to a letter signed by the party’s general secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey.
In addition, Kwame Governs Agbodza, MP for Adaklu, was chosen to succeed Muntaka Mubarak, MP for Asawase, as the party’s new Minority Chief Whip.
Many of the party’s followers criticized this choice, including Tamale Central MP Murtala Mohammed, who questioned the timeliness and applicability of the choice.
The modifications angered some party supporters in Tamale, who urged the group to reverse its decision.
To resolve the issues brought up by the shuffle, a meeting between the Minority and the party leadership has been scheduled for January 31.
