Member of Parliament for Tamale Central consitituency, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has finally disclosed what he shall be doing, when his tenure as MP expires on January 6, 2021.
The former Roads and Highways Minister under the erstwhile Mahama administration served three and half terms after winning the 2006 by-election when the incumbent MP, Prof Wayo Seini defected to the NPP.
Stating reasons for his his decision not to contest the seat anymore, the Mr. Fusieni said there has been a “generational shift” in the country’s polictics, as a wave of young people entering Parliament and pushing out experienced minds, hence, his exit to pave way for the young ones to take over.
The former Lands and Natural Resources Minister made these remarks in an interview on Joy News.
He said he realised during the counting at the collation centre in 2016 that his contenders were people way younger than him, making him feel out of place with lost of interest to seek reelection for another term.
“I was left in no doubt that there is a generational shift and I don’t belong. I made up my mind”, lawyer Inusah said.
“At the collation centre, it dawned on me that all the people who contested me were far younger than me, and that probably it was time to move on. I made up my mind that win or lose, I will not contest again. I felt the people of Tamale Central were communicating in ways that I needed to understand,” he added.
Asked what he will be doing after leaving parliament next year, the venerable lawyer hinted that he will go back to practice law, after making laws for 16 years.
“I will go back to law practice,” lawyer Inusah responded.
He entered Parliament in 2006 in a by-election, following the defection of Prof Wayo Seini, the then MP for Tamale Central to the New Patriotic Party.
