Changing Minority leaders; a ‘height of stupidity’— Inusah Fuseini

The immediate past Member of Parliament (MP) of Tamale Central, Inusah Fusieni, has kicked against calls for changes in the Minority’s leadership in Parliament.

According to him, any change in leadership within the Minority, which is made up of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) caucus, will be the “height of stupidity” on the part of the party.

This follows concerns raised by the NDC party faithfuls against the Minority in Parliament after the approval of some  ministerial nominees appointed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Minority has also received severe criticisms for doing little to put the ruling government in proper check.

But Mr Fuseini retorted that leaders should not be changed in times of crisis.

“In the stormy waters, captains do not jump ship. They use all their leadership skills and capabilities to steady the boat and when the storm calms and the boat is steady then they can choose to lay down their tools, but this is not the time. We don’t have to push the leadership out and doing so now with the greatest of respect will be the height of stupidity.”

A former Majority Leader, Cletus Avoka, earlier criticised calls for a change of the Minority Leadership.

He is of the view that the Minority side will be worse off if the calls for an overhaul of the leadership are successful.

“As of now, I don’t support it. We will be worse off in Parliament because I don’t think they deserve to be changed. I think that some people calling for change are exercising that in a position of ignorance. They do not know the full fact and, therefore, want to make a decision without appreciating the circumstances under which we do some things in Parliament,” Mr Avoka added.
