As controversy surrounds where the immediate past Minority Leader, Haruna should seat in the chamber, Majority chief whip Frank Annor Dompreh said it would be wrong to allow him seat three or two steps away from the front bench of the Minority.

According to him looking at the pedigree of the Tamale South lawmaker from his point of view it would be wrong for the current Minority Leadership to do that despite the fact that he is not the one to show where Haruna Iddrisu should seat.

“I can probably offer advice, if only they would talk to us for fair advice and can give that to Ahmed Ibrahim and Kwame Govern Agbodza and I think they should resolve this issue quickly, I have seen that Muntaka have been given a seat”, he said in an interview with journalists in Parliament.

And further pointed out that this is a lesson for the Majority side to learn from because it can happen to them, if they give any advice it should not be seen as spite, seating position is the work of the chief whip despite the fact that the leader has a say, he stated.

“I will have a word with the Minority chief whip it’s one thing for Haruna to complain, it’s another for the leadership to engage, the more it festers on the more it creates problem; it’s not an issue of cross carpeting, it’s about the intention and his intention is not to cross carpet”.

He said, “Mr. Speaker I have to speak from your position First Deputy Speaker”.
