Parliamentary decisions based on wisdom not emotions – Sam George fires back Sammy Gyamfi



Parliamentary decisions based on wisdom not emotions – Sam George fires back Sammy Gyamfi

The NDC Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Samuel George has replied the National Communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Sammy Gyamfi over his verbal attack on NDC MPs and Speaker of Parliament.

According to him, decisions in the chamber involves tact, strategy and wisdom over emotions.

Gyamfi accused the Speaker of Parliament and the leadership of the NDC caucus in the House of betraying the party after the House voted to approve all the vetted nominees for ministerial positions Wednesday night.

The party had directed its members to vote against some of the nominees especially those with security portfolios.


“Comrades, the betrayal we have suffered in the hands of the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin, the leadership of our Parliamentary group, particularly Hon. Haruna Iddrissu and Hon. Muntaka Mubarak, and dozens of our own MPs, is what strengthens me to work hard for the great NDC to regain power.

“They brazenly defied the leadership of the party and betrayed the collective good for their selfish interest. And we, must not let them succeed in their parochial quest to destroy the NDC, the party that has done so much for them and all of us. The shame they have brought on the party will forever hang like an albatross around their necks,” Mr. Gyamfi wrote in a statement Thursday.

But in a post, Samuel George said “I believe in the sense of camaraderie in the NDC Caucus. I believe in the integrity of our Members on the Appointments Committee. I trust our Leadership. We would act in the ultimate best interest of Party and Country. This involves putting tact, strategy and wisdom over emotions. If you have a problem with that, kindly pick forms the next time nominations are opened and contest to become an MP and come and do the blow man things you are posting about.”

Also, NDC Member of Parliament for Bawku Central, Mahama Ayariga, has described as unwarranted the attack on the Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin.

“To move from criticisms to questioning the integrity of the Speaker is overstepping the boundaries. You need to show exactly what Bagbin did to become the subject of an attack,” Ayariga said.
