I’ve adopted the fallout from the change in Minority management and I have to admit either side, for and towards the choice of the manager management of the NDC get together, make compelling arguments.
In reality, I’ve to confess that Honourable Haruna Iddrisu, Hon. Muntaka and Hon. Avedzi haven’t solely cleverly shepherded their colleague MPs to offer distinctively educated opposition to the federal government, but have additionally dignified their respective roles to nearly being peerless.
And it was from such rarity in high quality management that birthed the present management in Hon. Ato Forson, Hon. Agbodza and Hon. Buah.
These ‘new’ made males will succeed, but they’ll falter too, and whose large shoulders will they fall on in disaster moments, aside from these of Hon. Iddrisu and Hon. Muntaka?
And but, Hon.Iddrisu and Hon. Muntaka are ripe for a lot larger roles whose time will include the assist of the very males changing them in Parliament and the get together’s rank and file, which should not be divided.
The nation wants a viable various to the present financial atrophy. The NDC should be worthy, but in Unity.
