The Minority in Parliament has called on all “decent-minded” Ghanaians to join its members in demanding the immediate resignation of the Deputy Minister of Agriculture, William Agyapong Quaitoo.

Mr Quaitoo, who is also Member of Parliament for Akim Oda Constituency, is reported to have referred to the people of the north as not amenable to engagement in decent and reasonable discourse.

But in a statement on Monday, the Minority described the comments as “disparaging” and an “unprovoked attack on the people of the three northern regions”.

According to the statement signed by Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu, the caucus has resolved to go all lengths “to bring the originator of this offensive, mischievous and divisive statement to order in the supreme national interest”.
