He moved from his original sitting place in the chamber to seat closer to the MP for Bawku Central Mahama Ayariga. An action Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu described as unfortunate.

He added that amidst a near-brawl on the floor during the debate, the first-time opposition MP, was heard and seen making aggressive gestures at an MP accompanied with insults.

“He came to occupy the seat just close to where Ayariga sits… I’m talking about Suhuyini, and I’m saying that it’s most unfortunate. I mean you don’t conduct yourself like that. I mean on a couple of occasions, I’ve had word with him that he should watch his own attitude in the house, it’s not the best, on a couple of occasions he’s been made to apologise to people and so on and so forth.”

According to the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs, Mr Suhuyini could be heard retorting wildly: “Who are you to say that I should shut up, aren’t we here as MPs, aren’t we all equal?”
