NDC MP accuses Majority members on vetting committee of financial loss to the state

The main opposition National Democratic Congress' Member of Parliament(MP) for Banda Constituency in the Bono Region has accused the Majority members on the Appointments Committee of Parliament of causing financial loss to the state.

According to Ahmed Ibrahim, the Majority members on the vetting committee on June 11, 2021 collected moneys from the Finance Department of Parliament as their transport fares to return to their Constituencies to participate in the 'National Greening Exercise, a day set aside by the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources to plant a tree to green Ghana.

Mr Ahmed Ibrahim explained that the Majority members on the committee after signing for their transport fares to go and participate in the exercise as directed by the Speaker of Parliament, S.K Bagbin turned around to go and vet some four Deputy Ministerial nominees.

'These people took the money and refused to go and do not do the purpose for it was paid to them.

The NDC MP who is also the Minority Chief Whip made this accusation speaking on Accra-Okay FM’ morning show hosted by Kwame Nkrumah Tikese.

He noted that the Appointments Committee of Parliament is made up of twenty -seven members, out of this, fourteen are Majority members and thirteen are Minority members.

So why should the NPP Majority members sit to vet the nominees when the other thirteen members of the committee were not present because they have gone to participate in the exercise as direted by the Speaker, he queries.

This is fraudulent and members on the Majority side of the committee must be made to refund the transport fares they took to fury them to the various Constituencies.
