Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has expressed his disappointment in the Majority caucus of Parliament after they rejected a motion by Bawku Central MP, Mahama Ayariga asking government to absorb tertiary fees this year amidst the Coronavirus.
Speaking to Citi News, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu said the outcome was a blow to the prospects for collaboration between the New Patriotic Party caucus and National Democratic Congress caucus in Parliament.
He further suggested that the NDC caucus may pay back the Majority group following the unsuccessful motion.
“Building cooperation and consensus may prove difficult going forward because this was our first opportunity to have cooperation from those in the government.”
“It means they are not ready to cooperate, not ready to build consensus, and they probably may find it very difficult asking us to same in the foreseeable future,” Mr. Iddrisu said.
