The supporters numbering close to a hundred have besieged the office seeking answers to the change.
The Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed who was the first to kick against the reshuffle questioned why the party is bringing in inexperienced MPs to steer the affairs of the Minority Caucus.
“The timing is completely wrong. What is the basis of changing our parliamentary leadership? They are only taking away the most experienced leaders and bringing in the less experienced ones. Nobody told them we are dissatisfied with the leadership. Who told them we are unhappy with their performance?” the MP said.
