NPP MPs are uncomfortable due to my presence – Suhuyini

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale North Constituency in the Northern Region claims his presence in Parliament is making some New Patriotic Party MPs uncomfortable.

Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini has observed that “it is the mindset of some people on Majority side, not all of them, that some people do not deserve to be in parliament and by whatever standard, I am unable to tell”.

The Tamale North MP cited MP for Manhyia South, Dr Mathew Opoku Prempeh and Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, whom he claimed rained insults on him during a debate on the floor of Parliament on Thursday, 30 March 2017 after the Joe Ghartey Committee delivered the report on the bribery scandal.

The MP alleged that whilst the Education Minister, Dr Opoku Prempeh referred to him as “mad” and other “unprintable words”, Communications Minister, Urusla Owusw-Ekuful also hurled insults at him at the same time.

Explaining further on Onua FM’s Yen Nsempa hosted by Bright Asempa on Monday, Mr. Suhuyini said “no one is in that house on the basis of mercy.

Everyone conducted a campaign, got elected by the electorate to represent a constituency so it is not for another person who feels big in his shoes to determine who his colleague in that house is”. He said “I am tempted to believe that the fact that some of us are in that house are eating some people up.

Well, I can’t help them. I am sorry. I was voted by the good people of the Tamale North and I am grateful for that and they have to learn to accept that fact”.

Hypocrisy

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) law maker accused those who criticized him when they saw his video on social media on his reactions to Dr. Opoku Prempeh of being hypocrites.

“I find it hypocritical on the part of all those who insulted me and criticized me.

They should have found out what triggered my actions. When the video went viral on Sunday, those who criticized me did not find out what triggered my actions. Even the Majority Leader didn’t ask that question. Nobody asked that question.

But when Hon Napo’s video came out, they started asking what could have prompted Napo to do that and that is hypocritical”. He maintained, “Hon Napo scornfully insulted me. I was clearly attacked for doing nothing. It was an unprovoked attacked”
