The majority leader of parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has described as “embarrassing” the conduct of Tamale North lawmaker Alhassan Suhuyini on the floor of parliament during Thursday’s debate on the Joe Ghartey Committee Report.
“[His behaviour is ] an embarrassing spectacle and he must bow head down in shame.”
Amidst a near-brawl on the floor during the debate of the report, the first-time opposition MP, according to Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, was heard and seen making abrasive and aggressive gestures at an MP as he flung insults carelessly.
“…He came to occupy the seat just close to where Ayariga sits… I’m talking about Suhuyini, and I’m saying that it’s most unfortunate. I mean you don’t conduct [yourself like that]. I mean on a couple of occasions, I’ve had word with him that he should watch his own attitude in the house, it’s not the best, on a couple of occasions he’s been made to apologise to people and so on and so forth,” Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu told Joy FM’s Super Morning Show on Friday, 31 March.
The minister of parliamentary affairs opined that Mr Suhuyini could be heard retorting wildly: “… Who are you to say that I should shut up, aren’t we here as MPs, aren’t we all equal?”
