NDC MPs voted for progress and truth, not for selfish political gain of their party – Miracles Aboagye

Presidential Staff Dennis Miracles Aboagye has told the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to stop hunting for their Members of Parliament (MPs) who voted to approve the ministerial nominees.

He says the MPs voted for progress and truth and not for selfish political gain of their political party.

He tweeted “[These are not small] motivational epistles NDC MPs are writing on daily basis. At this point if you don’t write, you stand the risk of being accused. The NDC MPs voted for progress and truth and not for selfish political gain of their political party, leave them alone.”

His comments come at a time Tamale North Member of Parliament Alhassan Suhuyini wrote that it is not worth it to prove his integrity to anyone in the NDC regarding the approval of the ministerial nominees.

Suhuyini said even if he has evidence of how he voted in Parliament, he will not bother to prove his innocence to such a person.

His comments come after the NDC condemned the decision by some of its members of Parliament (MPs) to throw principle to the wind and pursue their parochial interest by voting for the six ministerial nominees of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

The party said the action of these renegade MPs only betrays the express will of the NDC and “constitutes a massive stab in the back of the good people of Ghana”.

The party said members, particularly leadership of the Caucus, who stayed true to the principles of the party must be highly commended.

“We will stop at nothing to identify them and publicly laud them in due course,” said a statement issued by the General Secretary, Fifi Fiavi Kwetey.

In a statement his Facebook page, Suhuyini said “After two days, I’m now angry!

Not angry at those who betrayed everyone, including themselves, but at those of us swearing our innocence whilst cursing and witch hunting others and those making us all, the guilty and innocent, do that. I know the most popular and politically correct thing to do now is to condemn, huff and puff, but anyone who knows me well enough knows, I’m not one to mostly give in to what is popular or politically correct.

“I prefer to be on the side of what I deem fair and, in all instances, CORRECT!

No wonder one of the bases for some to suspect or even conclude that I’m among the renegades is because I criticized the WAY, including timing (emphasis mine), our parliamentary leadership was reshuffled. I still think it could have been done better, but my loyalty to our new leaders is absolute and indivisible.

“That is why when the directive to reject the nominees was issued, as a member of the Appointment Committee, I asked these nominees the most uncomfortable and sometimes embarrassing questions. I joined our NDC side of the committee to recommend that all nominees be rejected at the plenary.

“Even on the floor, at least, on the Supreme Court nominees, I was one of our debaters, giving reasons and calling on the house to reject the nominations.

“I have therefore decided that anyone in NDC who requires me to prove my integrity is not worth it and, so, even if I have evidence of how I voted, I will not bother to prove my innocence to such a person. It is enough indictment that adults like us can’t seek to do what is right when we are not recorded or watched.”
