National Democratic Congress' Council of Elders Chair for South Africa and the Group Chairman of Allied Consortiums, Mr Benjamin Kofi Quashie has said the changes in NDC leadership in Parliament is meant to hit hard at NPP for its vulnerabilities.

He is of the opinion that looking at the economic quagmire in which Ghana finds itself, debates on the ailing economy need members with economic backgrounds to lead the leadership in Parliament.

This, to him, should not result in any chaotic situation in the party.

According to him, a house divided against itself cannot win any battle.

He averred that chaos, misunderstanding and conflicts are normal within any group, however, he is urging all party members to put their individual differences aside, come together and be battle ready for 2024.

Speaking to Nyansa TV on Tuesday 24th January, 2023 on YouTube concerning the current leadership changes on the NDC front in Parliament, he disclosed that "Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The ladder is real. The climb is all there are comrades. This change in our leadership in Parliament is a sign of us hitting the NPP vulnerabilities."

He stressed that "Matters of our ailing economy need a fiance mind. It all will make sense to us all soon! We've elected fearless and results-driven executives. The NDC would be united and poised to win the election 2024."

Mr Benjamin Kofi Quashie's comment follows the latest changes in the party's leadership in Parliament with Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson replacing Haruna Iddrisu as Minority Leader.

Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah also replaces James Avedzi as the Deputy Minority Leader while Kwame Agbodza is now the Minority Whip with Ahmed Ibrahim as the first Deputy Whip and Comfort Doyo Ghansah as Second Deputy Whip.

The party informed the Speaker of Parliament in a letter dated January 23, 2023, signed by the General Secretary, Fifi Kwetey.

These changes in the party's leadership in Parliament have generated some agitations within the rank and file of the party.

It is against this background that Mr Benjamin Kofi Quashie has charged party followers to respect the decision of the party.
