Alhassan Suhuyini sacked from parliament

Must Read

First deputy speaker Joseph Osei- Owusu ordered opposition Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Mr Alhassan Suhuyini, to leave the parliamentary chamber today Wednesday, 6 February 2019 .

According to Accra FM reports reports the incident happened, after Mr Alhassan Suhuyini was reportedly disrupting proceedings of the house after the Majority side had moved a motion demanding on apology from the minority to 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 Second Deputy Majority leader of parliament, Mr Matthew Nyindam, on Wednesday moved a motion on the floor of parliament asking the Minority to apologise to Ms Alhassan.

He backed his motion 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.”

The Minority MPs said they boycotted Ms Alhassan’s investiture because they did not want to give credence to her victory in the by-election on Thursday, 31 January 2019, which was characterised by violence.

Before staging the walkout, the Minority MPs brandished placards on the floor of the house, some of which read: “Bloody widow”.

But responding to the motion, the Deputy Minority Leader, James Averdzi Klutse said the messages on the placards were not words uttered nor made by any member.

He also said as of the time of that description, Ms Alhassan had not been sworn in, therefore, it was not covered under that standing order.
