Government Must Stop Giving Car Loans To MPs, We Must Do It Ourselves. Ablakwa Speaks.

The MP for the North Tongu Constituency, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has urged his fellow members of Parliament to oppose the act of the Government to get a car loan for them. The Finance Minister, Hon Ken Ofori-Atta not long ago tabled $28M agreement loan to buy vehicles for Members of Parliament. According to this, each member of the House will get an amount of $100,000 to purchase a vehicle.

Following this, the Legislator for the North Tongu Constituency has asked his colleague MPs to oppose this view. According to him, if the Government cannot provide cars for MPs as he does for MMDCEs, CEOs of State Institution, Ministers, security agencies, civil servant and so on, then there's is no need to table a loan for MPs to buy cars.

He added that MPs should oppose the view of the Government and find their own way of getting vehicles. According to him, opposing this will not allow the Government deduct money from monthly salary of MPs.

"If the executive branch of government does not have the resources to provide duty vehicles for MPs as it does for MMDCEs, CEOs of State Institutions/SOEs, Ministers, Judges, Civil Servants, Security Services, and so on and so forth, then MPs who need car loans should be allowed to make their own private car loan arrangements with the banks just as most private sector workers do.”

“That will simply require that government stops the monthly deductions from MP’s salaries so we will be free to broker individual car loan deals based on our salary structure, constituency terrain and other personal preferences". Hon Ablakwa noted this in a statement.

Let's analyse one thing here, the MP said his colleague MPs should find their ways of getting their own cars. Don't you think this will breed bribery and corruption in our Nation? Drop your thoughts on this and let get in touch.
