"We Won't Give Up"- Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa To Ken Offori Atta

Member of parliament for North Tongu constituency, Hon Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has stated that "Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta despite knowing that, urgent questions must be answered within 10-days still proceeded to contemptuously waste the time of Parliament by well over 7 weeks asking for more time on multiple occasions to provide answers to my urgent question on the cost of President, Akufo-Addo’s infamous £15,000 an hour profligate travels only to inform the House this afternoon after much struggle that I must now redirect my question to the National Security Minister. 

Well, let me be clear — we won’t give up, we won’t fret and we won’t relent.

I have therefore immediately filed an urgent question under Order 64 of Parliament’s Standing Orders for the National Security Minister to appear before the House with a response.

The palpably dishonest efforts to be evasive, elusive and engage in elaborate coverups under the latest guise of national security considerations would not be allowed to succeed.

Parliament cannot be disingenuously stampeded from carrying out its constitutional mandate of financial oversight on executive expenditure.

This entire episode now stands out as a monument in infamy on the deception about protecting the public purse and the levels of debauchery to satisfy creature comforts of President Akufo-Addo at the expense of suffering emaciated masses.

In the spirit of good governance and on the occasion of the birthday of H.E. Prof. John Evans Atta Mills who epitomized modesty and selflessness in public office, we are motivated to soldier on so that never again will millions of taxpayer money be subjected to such gross dissipation within 23 hours of ostentatious travel ironically to go advocate for debt forgiveness."

People thought the member of parliament will end everything there but he has taken the private jet saga to another level and assured the finance minister that he will investigate everything and hold them accountable.
