Former Member of Parliament for Damongo Adam Mutawakilu has advised the over 80 New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament seeking the removal of the Finance Minister to be cautious in their dealings with the Majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu
The majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah issued a statement claiming that the MPs in question had agreed to the demand of President Akufo-Addo to allow Ken Ofori Atta and Charles Adu Boahen stay on during the budget process and IMF negotiation process.
The Suame law maker has in subsequent interviews claimed the President gave no assurance that he would fire the Finance minister during the meeting in question and suggested money was offered to the 80 NPP MPs in a separate meeting with a Ghanaian business man over the same matter.
Even though the leader of the NPP MPs in question Andy Kwame Appiah-Kubi says the MPs refused the money in question, Former Damongo MP Adam Mutawakilu is surprised at the front role taken up by the Majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu considering he is not one of the MPs who have made the demands.
In an interview with Sena Nombo on the Gold Morning Conversation, Adam Mutawakilu wondered why the Majority leader has taken up a leadership position in a matter that he is not involved in.
The former Damongo MP said he expected the 80 MPs to have issued a statement themselves after meeting the President.
Adam Mutawakilu expressed the fear that the majority leader might cause rifts within the ranks of the 95 MPs and advised the MPs in question to be cautious in their dealings with the majority leader.
