The Director of Public Affairs of Parliament, Kate Addo, says the reaction on Members of Parliament over a vehicle advance arrangement proposed for the acquisition of vehicles for them is unwarranted.
The Minister for Finance, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta, introduced a credit understanding for $28 million to Parliament for the acquisition of vehicles for Ghana's administrators.
In view of the sum, every one of the 275 MPs is relied upon to get more than $100,000 for the acquisition of a vehicle.
Some Ghanaians are frustrated over the advance arrangement and have taken to online media to communicate their dismay about the issue.
In any case, addressing Citi News, Madam Kate Addo contended that there is no requirement for all the analysis since the MPs will ultimately take care of the advance.
"A portion of these MPs have their supporters in distant regions. These individuals need to approach their supporters. Preferably, these MPs need to visit their supporters basically once every week."
"These credits [will be paid] paid by MPs themselves, and they are deducted at source. So it's anything but like they will get them free of charge. These monies will be recovered," she clarified.
There have been circumstances of MPs neglecting to take care of vehicle advances.
In 2017, the Microfinance and Small Loans Center (MASLOC), was closely following a few Members of Parliament who purchased their vehicles borrowed yet had defaulted in repaying quite a long while after.
Reports show that letters had been kept in touch with the MPS for them to respect their commitments, yet they didn't answer
