It's My 13th Year As an MP, And I've Had 13 Accidents - MP For Banda Reveals

The Member of Parliament for Banda constituency, Ahmed Ibrahim, has revealed to Kwame Nkrumah Tikese of 'Ade Akye Abia' on Okay FM that this is his thirteenth year as a Member of Parliament, and he's had 13 Accidents.

Ahmed Ibrahim made this revelation when he gave his opinion on the MPs' car loans and the type of dangers they encounter as Members of Parliament.

According to Ahmed Ibrahim, he had an accident when he returned from abroad after Parliament sitting when he traveled to see the minister of energy at Bui. He said he had an accident on the way, and his car summersault three times.

"As I'm speaking with you, this is my thirteenth year as an MP, and I've had 13 accidents. I'm telling you, it's coincidental. Two of my cars are now condemned. Do you remember the accident I had with Muntaka at Kumasi? It happened early in the morning after we've worked tirelessly and tried to meet John Mahama at Kumasi. This is what MPs go through every time. That is the nature of our work and the dangers we face every day."

He however called on president Akufo Addo to constitute an Article 71 committee to bring out recommendations and conditions of services that will help solve the brouhaha surrounding Article 71 office holders, which will include parliamentarians.
