Not Elected To Train Parliament: Suhuyini Addresses NDC National Executives

National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North, Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini, has clashed with the party’s National Executives for trying to run Parliament (MPs on the NDC ticket) instead of focusing in its role of running the party “alongside” Parliament.

Acknowledging that his criticism of the party’s national leadership could spell his undoing, Mr Suhuyini insisted that executives should focus on complementing the efforts of NDC MPs rather than training them, adding that his current stance is not a good omen. for the electoral fortune of the party in the next general elections.

“This is something I have said at the risk of sometimes being ostracized by the party. But party leaders are not elected to run Parliament. They are not elected to be Parliament coaches. They are elected to manage the party along with Parliament. So when you have debates in Parliament and MPs win that debate, you expect the National Organiser, the Women Organizers and the President and the Secretary to be rallying people in the streets to complement what Parliament is doing,” she said in Pan. -Alhaji and Alhaji program of African television.

Mr. Suhuyini added that the conduct of the National Officials must change as the 2024 General Elections will not be won in the Parliament nor by the effort of the Parliament alone, but through mobilizations carried out by officials in the streets, markets and campus. .

“But what we have are like executives sitting on the bench leading Parliament and that will not lead us to victory. And as I said, I say this at the risk of being ostracized at times, but our party leaders need to start to wake up and understand that the 2024 election will not be won by the work of MPs alone. It will also be earned with what they do in the streets, in the markets and in the schools, ”he admonished.

The NDC’s new national leadership recently changed the NDC’s minority leadership in Parliament in spectacular fashion. He announced to the surprise of many, including his deputies, that he had decided to change the address. Protests by some parliamentarians and members were unsuccessful.

The leadership then instructed their MPs to reject an IC Constitutional Instrument set out by the Ghana Election Commission that will make the Ghana Card the only voting ID in all subsequent elections. The instruction seems to have been obeyed. But his order to his MPs to vote against the approval of some six ministers nominated by the president failed as all the ministers were approved courtesy of the votes of some NDC MPs.
