Joseph Osei Owusu, First Deputy Speaker of Parliament, has described the hullabaloo over the resignation of Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa from the Appointment Committee as petty.

“In our current democratic dispensation, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu reserves the right to stand down from the committee for personal reasons as he had indicated in his letter. This shouldn’t have generated any headlines. It was petty to have even started a discussion on the matter,” Hon Osei Owusu told Emefa Apawu in a one-on-one interview aired, Thursday on Joy News.

The First Deputy Speaker indicated that though the Appointment Committee is short of one person, that will not stop the committee from working. 

“Whether we invite another person to join the committee or not, shouldn’t be a problem. Let’s move past this issue and seek to work in the interest of the country,” he added.

Quizzed on whether an argument ensued during the voting of Hon Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance Minister, The Deputy Speaker noted that there were no kick-backs from representatives from either side of the house.

“In fact, there were no objections to the appointment of the Finance Minister. Not even, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa raised an objection to his appointment. So, if there’s some issue within the minority side, I wouldn’t know. But I think making his resignation a big deal is a non-starter. 

“It was petty as it shouldn’t have even been a topic for discussion,” Hon Osei Owusu averred.
