The General Secretary and the National Chairman of the main opposition political party, National Democratic Congress (NDC) have stormed the office of Parliament to help resolve the deepening cracks within the rank and file of the minority in the house.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia and Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo went to the House with the other members of the national executive to meet the leadership of the minority to resolve the crack which has deepened following the unanimous approval of Finance Minister designate, Ken Ofori-Atta by Parliament.
Mr Ofori-Atta whose vetting delayed due to his ill-health was unanimously approved by the House after two days of vetting; a decision which has generated chaos in the NDC party.
Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has tendered in his resignation from the Appointments Committee of the House citing ‘personal’ reasons and ‘principles’ as the reason for his action.
It was gathered that the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has summoned him to a meeting over the decision.
Although it has been claimed that the decision to approve the nomination of Ken Ofori-Atta was a collective one from the leadership of the minority, Bolgatanga MP, Isaac Adongo had distanced himself from it.
The ensuing confusion has led to the increasing cracks in the minority hence the need for the meeting.
