Tamale South Member of Parliament Haruna Iddrisu preferred to occupy the seat of New Patriotic Party (NPP) lawmaker for Bekwai who is also First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei Owusu (Joewsie) during proceedings in the House on Thursday, February 9.
That was after he rejected the seat that was offered to him belonging to Asutifi South Lawmaker Collins Dauda.
He told Joewise who was moderating Parliament on behalf of Speaker Alban Bagbin that as a well-trained person, he will not accept the seat of his senior brother.
Mr Speaker forgive me that I have to assume your chair.
“There was whether I should take over from Honorable Collins Dauda or not. I have told them that Honorable Collins Dauda is a senior by age, senior even in this house, I will not fit into his chair. As someone who is well-trained from home.
“Any other chair Mr Speaker is acceptable to me. I am still the elected Member of Parliament for Tamale South,” he said while contributing to a debate on the African Union Convention on Cross-Border Cooperation also known as the Niamey convention.
Mr Iddrisu was replaced with Ajumako Enyan Essiam lawmaker Dr Cassiel Ato Forson.
Muntaka Mubarak and James Kluste Avedzi were also removed as Minority Chief Whip and Deputy Minority leader respectively and replaced with Kwame Agbodza and Emmanuel Armh Kofi Buah.
