The national chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has declared that he still has hope in the members of parliament (MPs) from his party.
Ofosu Ampofo who was talking on Inside Politics hosted by Mugabe Maase on Power fm stated despite the Minority failed to disapprove some nominees of President Nana Akufo-Addo, he believes in their capabilities of upholding their party’s position on various national issues.
“We have war and in every war there are series of battles like Second World War and so forth which you’ll be moving from one place to the other, but sometimes you cannot be successful in all which means you can be defeated. When that happens, retreat and go back to restrategise and come back,” he said.
The party leadership recently met the leadership of the Minority over the matter where , according to Ofosu Ampofo, the Minority leadership apologised for the disappointment.
” I still have hope base on the interaction we have had with our brothers,” the NDC leader indicated and urged party supporters to stop attacking them on social media.
He continued, “The party leadership and council of elders have hosted enough meetings and are still putting things in order; and we don’t throw away the bath water together with the baby after bathing the baby so that’s the assurance.”
To him, there are battles that have been fought by the MPs in favour of the party and said one of which the legislators were praised and still being praised is how their side helped win the speaker of parliament.
“ So we are all looking forward that the momentum will be sustained; Ghanaians will be happy of the hang parliament we have for the first time which is also going to put checks and balances in the system,” Ofosu Ampofo added.
He ended by saying “there is no MP who goes to parliament without having national interest but beyond we have party’s interest since they stood on the ticket of their party that is why every party has its leadership and Whip and even the parliament seats is being divided based on the parties.”
