The Member of Parliament for North Tongu constituency, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has said that he has been quite hurt by some people calling him irresponsible for the write-up and comments he made about the cost of presidential travels after putting in a question at Parliament.
The North Tongu MP made this statement on 'Good Morning Ghana' today when he responded to the criticisms labeled against him since he put out information about the cost of presidential travels.
According to him, people have criticized him for running commentary on the issue after filing questions in Parliament.
"Some have even gone to the extent of calling me irresponsible and all that. I have been quite hurt by some of these statements, but I remain determined, and I have absolutely no regrets for the strategy that I have deployed." He said
He revealed that, the reason why this matter remains alive in Parliament is that he has not breached any of their standing orders.
He added that there is nowhere in their standing order that says that if you are going file a parliamentary question as a Member of Parliament, you cannot speak to the issue.
