Haruna Iddrisu refuses to take new seat provided by new minority leadership



Former Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu says he cannot accept the new seat allocated to him in Parliament because it belongs to his senior Collins Dauda.

Since he was removed as leader, his seat in the House has been taken over by his successor, Dr Ato Forson.

Haruna Iddrisu was asked to take over the seat of the MP for Asutifi South, Collins Dauda, but he has refused.

Commenting on the report of the Foreign Affairs Committee on the ratification of the Niamey Convention, the former Minority Leader who had gone to sit at the Majority side of the House and on the seat of the 1st Deputy Speaker said, “Forgive me that I have to assume your chair.

“There was [an issue] of whether I should take over from Collins Dauda or not and I have told them that Collins Dauda is senior by age…he is senior even to this House. So I will not sit in his chair as somebody who is well trained from home.”

Haruna Iddrisu explained that he will take any other seat given to him. “So any other chair is acceptable to me, I am still the elected representative for Tamale South.”

Former Deputy Majority Leader James Klutse Avedzi has accepted the seat of his successor Armah Kofi Buah behind his former seat.

It is not clear yet where former Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak will sit.
