Constituents hail Speaker for ordering Suhuyini to leave Parliament

Some constituents of Bekwai in the Ashanti Region are hailing praises on their Member of Parliament (MP) and First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Hon Joseph Osei-Owusu for ordering the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmaker for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini, to leave the floor of parliament on Wednesday, 6 February 2019.

"We believe our MP did the right thing by ensuring that law and order maintained in the august House", a constituent, who gave his name as Appiah Konadu spoke to this reporter, Kwabena Danso-Dapaah.

"Our MP is discipline and law abiding citizen so we were not surprise at all when we heard that he has ordered a collegue noisy MP to leave Parliament House", another constituent said during a vox pop interview.

The First Deputy Speaker ordered Hon. Alhassan Suhuyini, to leave the floor of parliament for disrupting proceedings.

The incident happened after the Majority Caucus had moved a motion demanding that the Minority apologise to the MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan Seyram, for describing her as a "bloody widow" at her swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, 5 February 2019.

Hon. Osei-Owusu, who found the conduct of the Tamale North MP, Alhassan Suhuyini unparliamentary, said: "Honourable Member for Tamale North, Kindly leave the house."
