University of Ghana, political science lecturer, Prof. Ransford Yaw Gyampo has stated that, if others had not been protected to go unopposed, they would have also fallen at the recent primaries of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Speaking about the primaries on an Accra based Radio station Starr FM, which was monitored by talksafrica.com, the political science lecturer cautioned that, this is a lesson for the incoming Members of Parliament and those that have been protected to go unopposed.
He further stated that, they should sit up and that, nothing in his view is going to be lost even if there are new people who are really smart and want to learn.
“It’s a matter of weeks. Parliamentary practices can be google searched and you will just be able to be socialized and you will be able to make your mark on the floor of parliament.” He added.
About 40 Members of Parliament lost their seats in the primaries of the ruling party which was held on Saturday June 20.
