After being removed as the leader of the caucus, former Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu declined a seat given to him by the minority in parliament.
He claims that Collins Dauda is older than he is and has been in office longer than he has, thus as a well-educated guy, he will decline the seat.
He did, however, add that, in addition to Collins Dauda’s seat, he would be open to accepting any other that would be acceptable to him.
Haruna Iddrisu, who was present, chose to speak in support of a motion on the House floor from the First Deputy Speaker’s chair, which is situated on the majority side of the chamber.
“Mr Speaker, forgive me that I have to assume your chair, there was [sic] whether I should take over from Collins Dauda or yours and I have told them that honourable Collins Dauda is senior by age and a senior even to this house. So, I will not fit into his chair as somebody who is well-trained from home. So, any other chair Mr speaker acceptable to me, I am still the elected member of parliament for Tamale south,” On February 9, he stated in the chamber after contributing.
Some members of parliament, including some previous leaders, have experienced some changes in their seating positions as a result of the NDC’s reorganization of the minority leadership in the legislature.
According to the way MPs are placed in the chamber, the leaders typically take up the front row, followed by the ranking members.
The most senior member of the legislature often sits in the first two seats.
The two lawmakers with the longest tenures, Cletus Avoka and Collins Dauda, held these positions prior to the reorganization.
Collins Dauda, MP for Asutifi South, has been replaced, nevertheless, by Haruna Iddrisu as a result of the reorganization.
