Alhassan Suhuyini, the Member of Parliament for Tamale North, reacted angrily at an appointments committee sitting on Monday when the chairman of the committee, Joseph Osei-Owusu, prevented him from asking a question.
Suhuyini had wanted to Boakye Agyarko, the nominee for energy minister, about some scandals that afflicted the Bank of New York when he (Agyarko) was vice-president.
But Osei-Owusu, who is also the first deputy speaker of parliament, interjected and asked the Tamale North MP to ask another question.
The intervention angered Suhuyini who stated that he the chairman had treated him unfairly.
"Mr chairman, I think I have to make it clear that I'm not happy with the way that I am treated on this committee.
"Mr chairman, I want it on record that I never impugned ill motive to the nominee. I simply referred to scandals and sough to find out how he left the bank, so we assure ourselves that he has no roles in those scandals because a vice-president was held responsible and he also left as vice-president. I never impugned ill motive, I never accused him, and I would like that to be on record that I'm not happy with the way you have treated me on this committee," he said.
In response, Osei-Owusu prevented Suhuyini from asking further questions.
The Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, Adwoa Safo, also accused Suhuyini of being rude.
The majority leader, Osei-Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, also took exception to Suhuyini's conduct.
