Peace And Christian Councils Losing Credibility - A.B.A. Fuseini

The NDC Member of parliament for Sagnerigu, Hon. A.B.A Fuseini says Peace Council and the Christian Council are gradually losing their credibility.

According to him, their long silence on issues in the country is making them spiritually impotent.

The member of Parliament who seem excited about the resignation of the embattled Deputy Agric Minister,Hon.William Quaitoo explained that this is the way to go, it will at least serve as a deterrent to other Members of Parliament and Ministers of State who speak any how in public.

Speaking on Okay FM's 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he explained that, these institutions must watch their credibility because they only prefer to issue statement when they are issues of convenience.

"They should talk tough to our Ministers and government officials when they go wrong, they should not sit on the fence and only come in when it is convenient for them or the dust is settled," he said.

The Minority in Parliament have been demanding the immediate dismissal of Deputy Agriculture Minister, William Quaitoo from the government over disparaging comments he made against northerners.

“We are demanding that he should, immediately, on his own volition resign as a minister and quit from Parliament, failing which the President must sack him to show his revulsion against such ethnocentric tribal bigotry,” the Sagnarigu Member of Parliament, A. B. A Fuseini stated in an interview before Hon. Quiaitoo's resignation.

Mr. Quaitoo has since apologized after suggesting farmers in the northern part of the country could not be trusted on claims about the destruction wreaked by the Fall Armyworm on their farms.

He intimated that the complaints and calls for compensation were simply a ploy to fleece the government of some money.

However, it is good the Deputy Minister has resigned, it will clam tension and nerves within my brothers in the North, but the president should have fired him, he added.
