Dr Cassiel Ato Forson: 77 NDC MPs endorse Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam MP as Minority Leader
The appointment of Dr Cassiel Ato Forson as Minority Leader is gaining massive support by the day.
So far seventy-seven (77) Members of Parliament on the Minority side have also signed a petition endorsing the appointment of the Ajumako-Enyan-Essiam MP as the new leader of the Minority caucus.
According to the seventy-seven opposition lawmakers, the decision by the leadership of the NDC is a step in the right direction.
