His reactions come after the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmakers on Monday, December 20, 2021, engaged in a fist·fight following a disagreement during the 1.75 E-Levy bill vote.

The free-for-all fight started when First Deputy Speaker, Joe Osei-Owusu, who was presiding over the business of the house in the absence of Speaker Alban Bagbin, attempted to also cast his ballot on whether or not the e-levy bill should be considered under a certificate of urgency.

Parliamentarians from both sides of the house were seen trading blows over the matter, which sent the whole house into chaos.

Speaking on the E-levy brought before the plenary by the Finance Committee of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu said the Minority is ready to "fight" the bill.
