|Minority Leader and Tamale South MP Haruna Iddrisu|
Mr Iddrisu entered parliament for the first time in 2005 after winning the seat in the 2004 elections, the year Mr Akufo-Addo exited parliament as legislator.
Delivering his maiden State of the Nation Address in parliament on Tuesday February 21, Mr Akufo-Addo, while commending the leadership of both sides of parliament, said: “I commend also the Majority Leader, my contemporary in this House who can now put his extensive experience of parliament to use as leader of the house and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs.
“My compliment goes to the new Minority Leader Honourable Haruna Iddrisu, who announced himself on the national stage when he came here in my last term in the House. It is clear that he has an important future in Ghanaian politics.
“I want to assure him and the leadership of the House on both sides that I will cooperate fully with parliament to enhance the governance of our nation to be able to do the business of Ghana effectively.”
