The ruling NPP is still in a state of great shock following the historic rejection of the 2022 budget. This happened on Friday after the NPP MPs left the floor of the house of legislation while accusing the speaker of parliament of political bias.
There has since been different accounts to the cause of that unpopular decision taken by the majority considering the fact that they together with the independent MP form a slim majority. If Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin is presiding, they can win any motion provided that they are able to whip all their members to vote.
A different twist of the story that is emerging suggest that the NPP walked out because two of their MPs were absent. These are the MP for Dome Kwabenya, Hon. Sarah Adwoa Sarfo and MP for Antwima Nwabiagya Hon. Emmanuel Agyei Anhwere. This revelation was made by Hon. Sam George during a panel discussion on Good Morning Ghana show today.
According to the Ningo Prampram legislator, the NPP side had been reduced to 135 MPs together with the independent MP formed 136. Clearly they were aware that they would had lost the voting hence the staging of a walk out.
Hon. Sam George didn't state where Hon. Anhwere was, but concluded that Hon. Adwoa Sarfo was in Germany. He said she was booked to be flown in by a rented private jet and could had only arrived by 9pm. This according to him was the reason why NPP was playing delay tactics.
Viewers may had spotted Hon. Kennedy Agyapong for the first time after he had been away for a long while for medical treatment. But these too MPs were not seen.
We do not know if they had returned as NPP has threatened to undo the decision of Friday.
We shall follow up and update followers soon. Kindly follow me in order to receive the updates automatically.
