Francis Xavier Sous

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has delivered a firm message to Francis Xavier Sosu, Member of Parliament for Madina, urging him to cease and desist from hastily engaging with the media regarding human rights issues.

Sosu submitted a petition to the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) on Tuesday, April 2, 2024, calling for the arrest, investigation, and prosecution of Gborbu Wulomo, a 63-year-old traditional priest, for allegedly marrying a 12-year-old girl.

Citing violations of both local and international laws on childcare and protection, Sosu denounced the marriage as “illegal, null, and void.”

However, the Political Committee of the opposition party has expressed reservations about Sosu’s approach, emphasizing the need for him to align his actions with the party’s objectives as a member and representative in Parliament.

According to the Political Committee, as a parliamentarian, Sosu is inherently intertwined with the party, making it challenging to separate his professional public stance from the party’s stance.

The Committee is concerned that the actions and inactions of lawmakers could damage the party’s reputation as a whole.

Comprising key figures such as the 2024 flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama, his running mate, Prof Jane Naana Opoku Agyeman, National Chairman Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, General Secretary Fifi Kwatey, Minority Caucus leader Cassel Ato Forson, and other prominent party leaders, the NDC’s Political Committee holds significant influence within the party’s hierarchy.
