A former appointee of the erstwhile Mahama administration P.V Dadson Boateng Jantuah has hinted that the daily trial of the Assin North Member of Parliament (MP), Gyakye Quayson is a plot to reduce the numbers of National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmakers in the legislature.
He has however stated that the move by the minority to always be at the court hearing in support of their colleague is one of the best decisions the NDC leadership has taken to save the country from the NPP passing needless bills in the house.
Mr. Jantuah on Kumasi-based Ultimate FM told show host Julius Caesar Anadem that“Anybody describing the NDC minority’s position of following Mr. Quayson to court on a daily basis as reckless and unparliamentarily, does not understand the plot of the NPP. They just want to reduce our numbers”
“They are looking for a time to rush through unfavourable bills to the house; I stand with my NDC people in the house. I solidarize with them; it is one of the best decisions to follow now”, he observed.
He argues that nobody can accuse the NDC of being lawless.
“When Collins Dauda and Ato were invited to the courts, did you hear the NDC say it was going to boycott parliament? Why this time? It is the behaviour of the NPP and the way they want to handle Mr. Quayson?” He asked.
“We will go to the courts always provided they call the Quayson case on a daily basis” Mr. Jantuah added.
