The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for New Juaben South in the Eastern Region, Mr Michael Okyere Kofi Baafi has said the Majority Caucus in Parliament will match the Minority caucus boot for boot.
Both the NDC and the NPP are claiming to have the vast majority even though they equally have 137 seats each.
According to him, the NPP caucus will no longer sit down for the NDC to take them for granted.
Mr Michael Okyere Kofi Baafi explained the NPP members are not planning to be docile to be bullied by the NDC MPs yet again.
“We’re expecting that there will be an understanding among the two sides the greater part need to go to the greater part aspect and the minority to their facet, we will not sit down for them (NDC) to step on us…if there’s still no comprehending, we will advise ourselves,” Mr Michael Okyere exclusively told Kwaku Dawuro on Anopa Nkomo on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
