Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has issued a nine-line whip for Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta’s dismissal.

A nine-line whip is an instruction given to Members of Parliament by their leader telling them they must vote in a particular way.

If the members fail to follow through with the wishes of the leader, there could be consequences.

Speaking in an interview on Joy FM’s Midday News on Thursday, Mr Iddrisu said he has asked the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak and Deputy Minority Whip, Ahmed Ibrahim to carry through with the order.

“I have issued a nine-line whip, … and we will stand strong on this matter,” he said.

In a related development, the Deputy Minority Whip, Ahmed Ibrahim has also filed a motion of censure against the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta.
