The issue of loans being given to Members of Parliament to purchase official vehicle has received massive reactions of the general citizenry. Many have raised concerns about the step taken by the Finance Ministry to get the loan agreement approved and called on the Honourable Members of the House to reject the proposal tabled before Parliament.
While some Honourable Members of the the House from either sides have spoken against the step of the Finance Ministry the loan agreement but the proposal has not been withdrawn yet and it seems deductions for the loan agreement has already started.
A social commentator, Mr. Charles Mintaba has added his voice to the calls made by the general public. He questioned why anyone would think that the members would need a loan before they can purchase for themselves cars. His reason being that some members have been part of the House for such a long time and thus could easily purchase the vehicles if they wish to without being given any loan.
He asked, "how can anyone convince me that someone like the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu, someone like the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, Okudzeto Ablakwa and others need a loan from government to buy a car when for the past four Parliaments, they have benefited from this same arrangement".
Mr. Mintaba added that the taxpayer's money should not be wasted in an area that already has enough but should rather be channelled to other areas which are in need. He mentioned the challenges faced by the society (laying more emphasis on the education sector) and questioned why the money would be channeled to areas which already has enough whiles these challenges persist within the society.
