- Some Facebook users have descended on Sulemana Braimah for calling NDC MPs weak
- According to the Executive Director of the MFWA, the MPs making up the current minority are the weakest in the history of the 4th republic
- His comments were met with anger with some Facebook users asking him to shush up
Sulemana Braimah, the Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) has incurred the wrath of some social media users for “disparaging” the current minority in Parliament.
In an earlier YEN.com.gh report, Braimah expressed worry about the seeming inability of the minority led by Haruna Iddrisu to scrutinise the Akufo-Addo administration.
He said in a Facebook post seen by YEN.com.gh that the “current minority in Parliament is the biggest and yet the weakest in the history of the fourth republic.”
Braimah’s criticism of the minority was met with anger and scorn by some Facebook users who asked him to shut up.
Agumeh Alexander for instance slammed him for his penchant to comment on every issue.
“Sometimes you talk too much, the 8th Parliament has been in existence for only 5 months. What do you want them to do? The government itself has not settled down and you are here saying what. Stop the noise. There are very important things to talk about Sir,” Alexander replied.
“I think you are just saying this to look balanced in the eyes of some Ghanaians,” another Facebook user stated.
Danny Anangang added: “We're faced with certain challenges and it's the government’s duty to solve those issues, why bringing minority here? What do you say about the issues raised by minority members? Have you commented on those issues? Say something relevant. This is not where you should be mudding yourself. This is just a campaign to the people of Ghana that we should not vote NDC into power.”
Meanwhile, former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu, accused the president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, of blackmailing the NDC MPs with the double salary scandal.
This, according to him, was the reason why the opposition MPs passed all the president’s ministerial nominees, despite expressing grave dissatisfaction with some of them.
Amidu further alleged that one of the former Ministers of Finance of the NDC was in charge of the negotiations on behalf of the Akufo-Addo administration.
