I’ve Consulted Haruna Iddrisu – Ato Forson

Haruna Iddrisu and Cassiel Ato Forson
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ajumako-Enyan-Esiam Constituency in the Central Region, Cassiel Ato Forson says he has consulted the dismissed Minority Leader of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu that he is ready to serve as the National Democratic Congress (NDC) new leader in Parliament.
According to him, he thanked the Tamale South MP for his stewardship when he was granted the opportunity to serve the party as a leader in Parliament.
In a statement shared on social media Thursday January 26, 2023 he promised to lead the party with collective goal and unwavering dedication.
He thanked the rank and file of the party for the opportunity and support to become the Minority Leader.
There is uneasy calm following the sacking of Haruna Iddrisu and Mohammed Muntaka Mubarak as leaders of the party in Parliament.
Whiles members of the NDC in Tamale South have shutdown their office and threatening to vote skirt and blouse as well as deal with the National Chairman and the General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah and Fifi Kwetey respectively whenever they set foot in the constituency, their members in Asawase are burning lorry tyres and wanted to burn the party office to express their displeasure over the shocking changes.
It took the intervention of the security agencies to restore calm in both areas.
Read his statement below:
My dear friends,
I am honoured and humbled to have been chosen to lead our illustrious and gallant caucus in Parliament.
I thank the leadership of our party who have placed their trust and confidence in me.
I am also deeply grateful to colleagues, the rank and file of our party and the Ghanaian people for their profound support and solidarity.
I have held fruitful and positive conversations with my senior brother Hon. Haruna Iddrisu. I commend him for his admirable stewardship when he was granted the opportunity by our party’s leadership.
As leader, it will be my duty to represent our collective goals with unwavering dedication and high integrity.
I have no doubt that with your support we shall succeed.
