Some constituents of Bekwai in the Ashanti Region are hailing praises on their Member of Parliament (MP) and First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Joseph Osei-Owusu for ordering the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini, to leave the floor of parliament on Wednesday, 6 February 2019.
“We believe our MP did the right thing by ensuring that law and order maintained in the august House”, a constituent, who gave his name as Appiah Konadu spoke to this reporter, Kwabena Danso-Dapaah.
“Our MP is discipline and law abiding citizen so we were not surprise at all when we heard that he has ordered a collegue noisy MP to leave Parliament House”, another constituent said during a vox pop interview.
The First Deputy Speaker ordered Hon. Alhassan Suhuyini, to leave the floor of parliament for disrupting proceedings.
The incident happened after the Majority Caucus had moved a motion demanding that the Minority apologise to the MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan Seyram, for describing her as a “bloody widow” at her swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, 5 February 2019.
Hon. Osei-Owusu, who found the conduct of the Tamale North MP, Alhassan Suhuyini unparliamentary, said: “Honourable Member for Tamale North, Kindly leave the house.”
