The NDC Member of Parliament(MP) for Odododiodio Constituency, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, has rubbished claims that the minority in parliament with the help of Speaker, Alban Bagbin is bent on frustrating government.
He maintained that neither will the minority make the government unpopular but rather, they will resist any hardship on the citizenry from the Nana Addo-led government.
Speaking on NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’ – Nii Lante however justified why the Minority and Majority engaged in fisticuffs in the chamber on Monday, December 20, 2021, during the voting on the controversial E-levy bill.
He strongly blamed the chaos in the House on the majority side.
“They decided to attack our people. They decided to prevent us from making sure we defended our rights,” the Odododiodio MP said.
The disorder which was by then gathering momentum went haywire after the First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu [Joe Wise] vacated the chair for Second Deputy Speaker to take over in an attempt to vote on the E-levy bill.
