National Chairman of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has disclosed that the Minority MPs in Parliament have become endangered species in their constituencies following their approval of some ministers of President Akufo-Addo.
According to him the NDC MPs are under constant attacks in their various constituencies because some members of the party had been highly unsatisfied with the overwhelming votes some ministers had to be approved in Parliament.
Speaking on Power FM’s inside politics, he cited two instances where supporters verbally attacked their MP in a constituency and a senior MP complained bitterly about a media show he attended and all the messages that came in during the live programme were questions and insults hurled directed at him.
He however called on party supporters to let go of the past events and support their MPs to deliver.
He acknowledged the fact that the MPs erred in approving the ministers however, they have shown remorse and it’s imperative the NDC surge forward together.
He intimated that the MP having engaged them have shown “remorse” and so “let’s forgive them. At least not all 137 voted for them”.
The National Chairman of the NDC argued that although the MPs erred, majority of them voted against the nominees and that should be the consolation adding the party will chart a new course and work better for Ghana.
“This situation will rather make the MPs perform even better because some want to redeem themselves,” he added.
