Member of Parliament for Tamale North, Hon. Alhassan Suhiyini who was ordered out of parliament today (Wednesday) for disrupting proceedings of parliament says it is just like a tap on his shoulder.
He says this cannot deter him from doing what he is supposed to do or say in parliament.
In an interview with Peace FM News after he had been ushered out of the chamber, he could not fathom why the speaker will take such an entrenched position.
“If they think they can intimidate us from speaking our mind as parliamentarians so far as issues of Ayawaso West Wuogon is concerned we will continue to ask for what is right in parliament,” he said.
“How was what I was doing disrupting proceedings. Many others did that. Why was it Suhuyini? . . . What got to him is the truth I spoke about what properly should have been done which was to refer those who were holding the placards to the privileges committee.”
