The former National Organiser of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Yaw Boateng Gyan, has revealed that the council of elders in the party is working towards sustaining peace in the party.
This statement by the former national executive of the party is in line with the recent happenings in the NDC including the resignation of Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, as a member of the Appointments Committee.
The approval of some ministerial nominees, including Minister for Fisheries for Hawa Koomsom, earlier this month generated controversy in the party.
Sammy Gyamfi, The National Communications Officer of the NDC, chastised the leaders of the NDC in parliament, Speaker Alban Bagbin, Haruna Iddrisu and Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak Mohammed for betraying the party.
Member of Parliament for North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, who has been a member of the Appointments Committee since 2012, resigned from the Committee citing personal reasons as basis for his resignation.
Speaking to Kaakyire Ofori Ayim on Atinka FM’s AM Drive, Yaw Boateng Gyan, said although the founder of the party, Jerry John Rawlings is deceased, the party has a competent council of elders working towards calming nerves with respect to the recent happenings in the party.
” The council of elders has started work and everything will be restored soon. NDC is a great party and we will make sure issues like this do not stick around for long”, he noted.
Meanwhile, Haruna Iddrisu, the Minority Leader in parliament has revealed that he is not confused and that he will continue to work diligently as the minority leader of the party in parliament.
“Whatever storm it is, we will weather it. The party at any time will discuss that with the Caucus and Parliament will make a determination of that matter. Don’t forget I am in Parliament in my own right as elected Member of Parliament of Tamale South,” Haruna Iddrisu told press men at a forum on Tuesday 31st March 2021.
