The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrius however raised an objection and said the entire House, made up of 275 Members of Parliament (MPs), have to take the final decision, not the Speaker or the Privileges Committee.

He cited how Parliament decided the fate of Eric Amoateng, a former MP Nkroanza North and advised that the House should not "set a precedent where tomorrow Privileges Committee submits a report and recommends the removal of an MP."
