Mr. Alhassan Suhuyini, has advised his colleagues in the Majority who boldly called for the removal of Ken Ofori-Atta, the Minister for Finance and Charles Adu-Boahen, Minister of State at the Finance Ministry from office not to make a fool out of themselves or sacrifice their integrity. “They should not sacrifice themselves for the comfort of these two persons; or the presidency or their party”. Adding that, their personal integrity should be paramount to them.

Speaking on Metro Tv’s ‘Good Morning Ghana Show’ on Thursday, October 27, 2022, Mr. Suhuyini who was reacting to the statement from the Majority Caucus that suggests that they (Majority Caucus) have yielded to the President’s appeal to allow the two beleaguered Ministers remain at post for the conclusion of the round of negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the presentation of the Economic Policy Statement of government in November 2022, and subsequent passage of the appropriation Bill after which the matter in question shall be acted upon, said the Majority Caucus must show to be principled.

He asserts that “this journey that they have begun is an illuminating one; it is a patriotic one, and they should not let the masses down”. The Tamale North Member of Parliament said his colleagues in the Majority must stay committed to rescuing this nation; they must stay committed to refocusing the financial management of this country and admonished them not to be derailed.

As such, he called on the Majority Caucus to come on board to support the motion that the Minority Caucus has filed to censure the Finance Minister. He explained that though both sides of the House have equal numbers of 137, the Minority would not be able to succeed with the motion of Censure with their numbers without the support of the Majority. The Two-third majority as prescribed by law requires support from the other side, he stated.
