The Member of Parliament for Tamale North Alhssan Suhuyini has said Afenyo-Markin the Deputy Majority caucus does not carry out court orders, so it doesn’t lie with parliament to fight the battle of the court.
Alexander Afenyo-Markin, Effutu MP says the opposition NDC caucus are hindering government business with their actions of showing some level of protection to the Assin North Member of Parliament James Gyakye Quayson who illegally carrying himself as the MP Assin North despite an injunction.
Alexander Afenyo-Markin, Effutu MP, says the NDC has exhibited these tendencies since the business of the eighth Parliament commenced.
He said the NDC caucus in the eighth parliament has refused to honor the High Court injunction restraining one of their members who hold dual citizenship [Ghana and Canada] from holding himself as an MP.
He noted the behavior of the NDC caucus shows “bad faith” and “ambushed” of the system.
“I think the NDC’s posture is dangerous for our democracy and dangerous for the rule of law in the sense that they have formed a human shield and protected Mr. Quayson,” he said.
But responding to the accusation by the Deputy Majority Caucus in parliament against the NDC, the Member of Parliament for Tamale North Alhssan Suhuyini who was speaking on CitiTV monitored by Apexnewsgh.com said, Afenyo-Markin does not carry out court orders.
“Afenyo-Markin does not carry out court orders, so it doesn’t lie with parliament to fight the battle of the court. Why is the court feels his orders is not been obeyed and not doing anything about it? We challenge the validity of the so-called injunction. So, is the court that should do what they have to do if they are so minded to do anything about it. The Member hasn’t been served any injunction, he was not in court when the so-called injunction was issued”.
“The injunction was simply to stop him from been sworn in, so that the case may determine whether he has dual citizenship or not and that hasn’t been established.
What we know in this country is that a citizen has been in parliament for 3 years, a dual citizen of Ghana has been in parliament, served the people of Bawku Constituency as its member of parliament for 3 years until the court determined he was a dual citizen and he was removed”.
