Haruna Iddrisu, leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Caucus and member of the Vetting Committee has challenged the chairman of the committee, Joseph Osei-Owusu over the allocation of time for the questioners.
Francis Xavier Sosu, MP for Madina pleaded to be allowed to ask one more question but the Chairman tried to decline his plea. That invited Haruna Iddrisu to flare up and demand flexibility from the Chairman.
According to Haruna Iddrisu, they were only discharging a constitutional mandate in the best interest of Ghanaians and that they should be informed in case the Chairman did not want them to carry out that mandate.
“Be a little flexible and leadership will manage how much time we spend. If you don’t want us to undertake this exercise, there is no problem. That is why we are here. I just said you should give one question, not three,” Haruna said.
The Chairman then allowed the Madina MP to proceed with his question.
