Reports circulating on Tuesday indicated that Mr. Bedzrah had even written to the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye, informing him of his decision to exit.

However, speaking on the subject, General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the MP has rescinded his decision to resign.


He explained that Mr. Bedzrah’s supposed resignation had to do with challenges with regards to the party’s upcoming constituency election.

According to him, the problems which led to the lawmaker deciding to step down have been duly resolved.

Mr. Bedzrah has been in Parliament on the ticket of the NDC since 2008.
