‘Your letter to us unnecessary’-Andy Appiah- Kubi to Justin Koduah

945

 

The Member of Parliament for Asante Akyem North, Andy Appiah Kubi has described the directive by the National Executive Committee (NEC) for NPP members to recuse themselves from censure procedure by the minority group as ‘’unnecessary’’.

The directive which was signed by the General Secretary of the Party, Justin Frimpong Kodua Esq had called on NPP members who form the majority in Parliament not to play into the hands of the NDC when they move for the debate and admittance of the censure process on the Finance Minister.

But speaking to Samuel Frimpong, morning show host at Salt 95.9fm in Agogo on Thursday morning, the former Deputy Minister for Railways rubbished the statement from the General Secretary who was trumpeting a NEC decision.

Andy Appiah Kubi, a lawyer, said the statement by the General Secretary was needless since the Majority caucus was bent on seeing the Finance Minister resign.

‘’To me the statement by the General Secretary was unnecessary because we know what we have demanded’’, Lawyer Appiah Kubi stated.

DETAILS:

The Asante Akim North MP noted that they had agreed with the President to take action on the Finance Minister since they were not happy with his performance.

This demand, he recalled, had been stood down on the plea of the President and the caucus was only waiting for the IMF negotiations to be completed and the budget also read.

He said the Finance Minister leading both actions was worrisome but the over 80 MPs who initially led the charge for his dismissal were only waiting to see action taken by the President when the two processes were over.

Lawyer Appiah Kubi therefore feels the statement from the NEC and communicated by the General Secretary was needless since the caucus were not going to participate in the censure process by the NDC minority group.

BACKLASH:

But speaking to this reporter, some NPP members from Asante Akim North constituency wondered why their MP was speaking against the party’s stance.

Abena Dansowaa, a trader and NPP member at Adiemmra  called on the MP to show respect to the party.

‘’Our MP is gaining notoriety for speaking against decisions of the party and for him to describe a statement from our general secretary shows he is unruly’’, Madam Dansowaa stated.

Kwabena Agyekum, mechanic and NPP member at Domeabra said the utterances of the MP have been very bad lately.

‘’You cannot be speaking against the party that gave you a place to become relevant in society this way and how on earth can you describe your general secretary with such foul language’’, Agyekum quizzed.

Derrick Amoako, NPP from Hwidiem said he was surprised that the MP, who is a Lawyer, was behaving this way to the NPP.

‘’I am surprised at my MP and I don’t want to believe that he is doing this because he was not given any position in Nana Addo’s second term government
