General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketia says the governing New Patriotic Party is suffering from the hangover of the seventh Parliament of the fourth Republic.
The NDC Scribe said this in an interview with Sena Nombo on the Gold Power Drive in the wake of his party successful rejection of the 2022 Budget and Financial Statement of the Nana Akufo-Addo led New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
Despite bearing the revered title of ‘majority’ , the NPP caucus in Parliament had to stage a walkout to avoid the embarrassment of losing a vote on the fate of the budget.
Johnso Asiedu Nketia who was used as scapegoat for the NPP’s strategic walkout, says the NPP needs to learn from the happenings in Parliament on 26 November 2021.
He said the governing party needed to realize that there is ‘no majority’ in the 8th Parliament.
The NDC General Secretary singled out the ‘Majority Group Leader’ Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu for criticism.
He advised the Suame Legislator to change his leadership style as he did not have the numbers he had in the 7th Parliament.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia said Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu adopted a ‘you can go to hell’ autocratic approach when the NPP the NPP had 169 MPs as against the NDC’s 106.
