Change In Minority Leadership Is Due To Greed & Selfishness: MP



Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini, a member of parliament (MP) representing Tamale North, claims that no one can coerce the Minority caucus into supporting a new leadership, which he considers improper.

Suhuyini doesn’t appear to support the new model of leadership in Parliament and thinks it is solely motivated by selfishness and avarice.

Haruna Iddrisu will be replaced as head of the Minority in Parliament by Cassiel Ato Forson, an Adjumako MP and current ranking member of the Finance Committee, according to a letter signed by the general secretary Fiifi Fiavi Kwetey.

According to reports, the leadership changes were the result of a palace coup organized by John Mahama and party chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketiah to quell the front bench’s growing dominance under Haruna Iddrisu.

The changes have elicited a range of responses, with the minority caucus members lamenting the lack of communication from the party leadership on the decision to alter their leadership in Parliament.

Below are Alhaji Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini’s words:

Like life, death, and taxes, change is the other constant. Therefore, I’m not against constructive changes borne out of an exhaustive consultative process involving key stakeholders of the party to our front bench as a minority group.

Clearly, that is not what has happened, no matter how well-intentioned it may be.

Worse of all, whoever is advising the strategy of the proposed new leaders, is feeding into a normal human extreme greed and selfishness, perhaps because the fellow(s) is unable to untamed theirs too.

Given the composition of our caucus compared to our opponents and the expectations of what we can achieve together and the reality of what we can not, even if we are together. It will take extreme greed and selfishness to want to lead this NDC caucus at ALL COSTS at this time, without a toss about long-term consequences on the caucus and party.

I wonder why it seems people think they can intimidate the entire caucus into submitting to an authority we consider inappropriately constituted. Some may, but not the majority of us, and it’s not personal, it’s conviction, it’s principled.
