Minority In Action Filed Fresh Suits At Supreme Court

The minority led by the largest opposition party NDC appeared to finally lock horns about how it intends to deal with parts of the Professor Baidu Committee that recommends presidential spouses being paid legalized monthly salaries for the beautiful roles they perform to the people of Ghana.

The NDC through some of its members in parliament has announced a fresh suit to challenge the decision, the suit which we cited invoked the original jurisdiction of the highest court of the land.

The faces behind the suits as the plaintiffs include two members of parliament but one.

MP for South Dayi, Rock Dafeamekpor and Clement Apaak MP for Builsa South, and one private citizen, Frederick Nii Commey filed papers suing the Attorney General as the defendant.

This is the clear case of a test of the system of accountability in Ghana I wish them all the best, says a social media commentator.    

"However, I am all for the testing of the law but it seems this case is dead on arrival. Are they receiving allowance or salary? I don't want this case to be dismissed on technical grounds," It added.

Meanwhile, the suit is praying the highest court of the land, based on upon the true and proper interpretation of Article 71 declares the recommendations of Professor Baidu's Committee on Her Excellencies to receive monthly allowance as null and void.
