The Finance Ministry has tabled before Parliament a loan agreement seeking approval to secure a 28 million dollars loan facility from the National Investment Bank.
If approved, each MP and each council of state member will receive about $100,000 for the purchase of a vehicle.
This development, coupled with the parliamentary approval for the payment of allowances to the Spouses Of the president and the Vice-president, has received serious backlash from the citizenry.
Kevin Taylor made this statement yesterday when he lamented the money that has been tabled for Parliamentarians to buy cars for themselves.
According to Kevin Taylor, the youth are learning from the old people, and at this point, nothing will stop the youth from aspiring to becoming Members of Parliament.
"Every single political science student, every young man abroad eyeing Ghanaians politics, every young man in the NDC or NPP looking at a bigger political ambition will target Parliament because that is where the money is, you don't need to work, you don't need to deliver, and you don't need to be accountable. Enter Parliament, and you will be rich." He said
He added that people in Parliament have shown that even amid COVID-19, there is enough money for the spouses of the president and the Vice-president. Despite the pandemic, they've been able to raise a hundred thousand dollars for MPs to buy cars.
