NPP should reshuffle its Majority leadership – Ransford Gyampo

A Political Science Lecturer at the University of Ghana, Professor Ransford Gyampo has asked the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to reshuffle the Majority Caucus leadership to avert future fisticuffs in Parliament.

In a yet-to-be aired Hotline documentary, dubbed, Ghana’s Hung Parliament: A Blessing or a Curse, Part II,” the Political Scientist intimated that the current crop of leadership lacks what it takes to lead a hung legislature.

According to him, the governing party’s leadership must have the technical know-how to deal with crises so that the government’s businesses are not hampered.

“The leadership of the Majority group needs a complete overhaul. So if they haven’t thought about it, then I am telling them. And if they will maintain the same leadership in these processes it will be up to them.

“But I think that you need a certain caliber of leadership whose language would be so conciliatory so that you will not have to bring people from outside Parliament to intervene,” he told JoyNews’ Kwesi Parker-Wilson.

Prof Gyampo further cast doubt that the leadership cannot change, hence, a complete overhaul would be prudent method.

“We are going to have this from now to 2024 and either the current leadership change but of course a leopard spots cannot change even if it falls into water,” he said.

But in a sharp rebuttal, the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu asked Prof Gyampo not to stick his nose where it does not belong.

According to him, the outspoken lecturer does not qualify to give the governing party such suggestions.

“He should keep his advice to himself with respect to him. Everybody hears his pronouncements and he’s never condemned the NDC,” he retorted.
