I support, respect and will defend change of NDC Minority leadership – Inusah Fuseini
National Democratic Congress (NDC) stalwart and former Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale Central Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has defended the decision of the NDC national leadership to change the leadership of the NDC minority caucus in Parliament. He described the change as forward-looking and not a suggestion of failure on the part of the old leadership.
Speaking on Pan-African TV, Alhaji Inusah argued that the change is a strategic repositioning of the party in that Parliament will become battleground for the NDC as it seeks to wrestle power from the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2024.
“… Energy will play a critical role in debates in Parliament; Infrastructure will play a critical role in debates…So the reshuffle is simply not to say the old leadership, the leadership of Haruna Iddrisu did not do well. No! Far from it. I have had occasion to tell him[ Haruna Iddrisu] time and again that he had done well. But this reshuffle is forward-looking. What is the goal? The goal is to secure victory, to win, to use Parliament as a battleground to win the minds and hearts of the people of Ghana and engender sympathy towards the NDC for election 2024,” he argued.
He stressed that the change in the national leadership and subsequently the parliamentary leadership of the party is to send a signal of the party’s strategic repositioning given the prevailing circumstances.
“Now that being so, you have to put your best foot forward. Strategic repositioning of the party does not mean that those who were replaced did not do well.
Again strategic repositioning and election of new current executive is to send a signal that this is what NDC is doing: to position people in such a way so that the party cannot lose election 2024. And that is what has been done. And that is why I respect and I support it. And I will defend it anywhere,” he noted on Pan African TV
The new leadership of Parliament for the NDC minority caucus is headed by Cassiel Ato Forson.
