Deputy Speaker Osei-Owusu Sacks Suhuyini From Parliament

The opposition Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini, was ordered to leave the floor of parliament on Wednesday, 6 February 2019 by First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu.

Accra100.5FM’s parliamentary reporter, Richard Appiah Sarpong, who was in parliament when the incident happened, reported that Alhassan Suhuyini was disturbing procedures of the house after the Majority side had moved a movement requesting that the Minority apologize to the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Alhassan,for describing her as a “bloody widow” at her swearing-in ceremony on Tuesday, 5 February 2019 after winning the by-election which was riddled with violence.

Mr. Osei-Owusu, who found the conduct of Alhassan Suhuyini unparliamentary, said: “Honourable Member for Tamale North, Kindly leave the house.”

Alhassan Suhuyini left the house in the midst of disapproving shouts from the Minority side, Appiah Sarpong reported.
