Former President John Dramani Mahama has resolved the controversies surrounding the recent shakeup in the NDC Caucus in Parliament.
On Tuesday, January 24, the opposition party, in an official letter, informed the Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin, about some changes in its leadership in Parliament.
In the letter, the ranking member on finance, Mr. Cassiel Ato Forson, takes over from Mr. Haruna Iddrisu as the minority leader.

The Minority Chief Whip, Hon. Mohammed-Mubarak Muntaka has also been replaced with Mr. Kwame Agbodza.
The matter caused stir with some aggrieved MPs kicking against the decision of the NDC leadership for what they described as a lack of proper consultation.
The confusion in the party has compelled their 2020 presidential aspirant to intervene and resolve the impasse.
The immediate past Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak, disclosed in a Facebook post that the issue has now been resolved, calling on PM Party faithful to embrace the changes.
“To all our supporters within and without, I had a lengthy meeting with my big brother, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, on Saturday evening over the parliamentary reshuffle.
“I want to, first of all, thank him for the words of advice and encouragement he gave me as a younger brother,” his post began.

“I thank all our chiefs, Queen Mothers Imams, and supporters for your prayers and solidarity. I pray for Allah’s guidance in all our affairs.
“Long live NDC long live Ghana,” he added.
