Dep. Speaker Sacks Suhuyini From Parliament
National Democratic Congress Member Of Parliament for Tamale North, Mr Alhassan Suhuyin was today, February 6, 2019 sacked from the floor of parliament by First Deputy Speaker Joseph Osei-Owusu.
According to Hon. Osei Owusu, the sacking was necessary because Mr Alhassan Suhuyini was disrupting proceedings of the house after the Majority side had moved an application demanding that the Minority apologise to the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan, for describing her as a “bloody widow” at her swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, 5 February 2019 after winning the by-election which was riddled with violence.
Mr Osei-Owusu, who found the conduct of Mr Alhassan Suhuyini unparliamentary, said: “Honourable Member for Tamale North, Kindly leave the house.”
Mr Alhassan Suhuyini left the house amidst disapproving shouts from the Minority side, Appiah Sarpong reported.
The 1st Deputy Majority whip and Mp for Kpandai, Mr Matthew Nyindam, on Wednesday moved an application on the floor of parliament asking the Minority to apologise to Ms Alhassan.
He backed his application with Standing Order 93(2), which says that: “It shall be out of order to use offensive, abusive, insulting, blasphemous or unbecoming words or to impute improper motives to any member or to make allusion.”
