Nobody Can Stop The NDC From Campaigning On Any Akyem Land; If They’re Men They Should Stop Us And We’ll See – Lante Vandepuye Hits Back At Akyem Chiefs



Member of Parliament for the Odododiodoo constituency, Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye has dared the Akyem Chiefs who protested against former president John Dramani Mahama over his rehashing of the ‘Akyem Sakawa’ boys post on social media.

Speaking on Accra FM’s 6pm News on September 9, 2020 he insisted the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer did nothing wrong that warrants an apology.

According to him, the statement was made in context of the Agyapa Mineral royalties brouhaha and the people involved. He noted that John Mahama owes no one an apology because there are others who have made worst or similar statements but were not stopped from entering anyone’s land.

Mr Vanderpuye further affirmed that the NDC and John Mahama cannot be stopped by anybody from campaigning in any of the Akyem lands. He warned that we’ll see what will happen in the country if anybody dare stops the NDC from campaigning on their lands.

The Chiefs and people of the three Akyem states, Abuakwa, Kotoku and Bosome in a protest, issued a one-week ultimatum to the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, to retract and apologise to Akyems for the “Akyem Sakawa Boys” tag or be banned from campaigning on any Akyem land.



Audio: Osei Kyei Is The Majority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu Is The Minority; Stop Confusing The Public – Speaker Warns MPs



The Speaker of Parliament Alban S.K. Bagbin has urged Members of the Eighth Parliament to desist from confusing the public over the leadership of the two groups in the house.

Speaking in Parliament today, Right Honourable Bagbin stated that Osei-Kyei-Mensah Bonsu was the Majority Leader and Haruna Iddrisu was the Minority Leader.

He said: “…The Standing Orders further provide that the Majority Group will be lead by a leader and that leader is referred to as Majority Leader and Order 160 and Order 168 demands that the Business Committee and the House Committee be chaired by the Majority Leader, that is the standing orders we have now and I am guided by that, I am bounded by it…

“So please, don’t keep confusing the public. So the Honourable Osei-Kyei-Mensah Bonsu is the Majority Leader, the Honourable Haruna Iddrisu is the Minority Leader”.

The Speaker’s latest declaration on the composition of the House comes a week after he declared that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) caucus in Parliament together with the independent Member of Parliament for Fomena, Andrew Asiamah Amoako constitute the Majority Group in Parliament.

That declaration followed an official letter from Mr Asiamah Amoako to the Speaker in which he stated that he will do business with the NPP caucus in Parliament led by Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
