While they being asked to reach out for a consensus-building in the 8th Parliament, Members of Parliament (MPs) of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) should also be tactical and fearful of colleagues’ members in the belonging to opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the august House.
According to Captain (rtd) Nkrabeah Effah-Dartey, when it comes to the debates on the floor of the House, experienced people like Hon. Haruna Iddrisu and others in NDC are unmatched, hence, there is a need for NPP lawmakers to sharpen their debate skills to match them boot-for-boot.
“Fear Haruna Iddrisu and be tactical especially when you are dealing with other NDC members in terms of the debate”, the former NPP for Berekum advised when he spoke to what political pundits described as tight Parliament in the 8th Parliament
“The NPP MPs should not take NDC for granted especially the likes of Haruna Iddrisu who is a formidable person I know”, he added.
Speaking on Kumasi-based local radio station monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Captain (rtd) Nkrabeah Effeh-Dartey admonished NPP lawmaker to concentrate more on their parliamentary duties than any other thing voted for.
“They should stop attending funerals and weddings rather, concentrate on making laws… the party will also have full control on the floor of Parliament”, the private legal practitioner pointed out.
“NPP lawmakers must be up to their games looking at their numbers against that of National Democratic Congress (NDC) to enable the government achievement its programs and policies”, he added.
