I Blame Majority Leadership for Beginning of all These Mess in Parliament- Kweku Baako

Veteran journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has slammed the leadership of the majority caucus in Parliament for the debacle surrounding the approval of the 2022 budget.

Mr Baako contends the controversies generated in relation to the approval of the budget could have been avoided if the majority leadership were proative.

Speaking on the Kokrokoo show on Wednesday, the Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide Newspaper said there were indications that the minority was going to vote against the budget. Therefore, the leadership of the majority should have ensured that all their members were present in the country ahead of the Friday sitting.

Although, he believes in the competency of the Osei Kyei Mensah led leadership, Mr Baako insists they have not been sharp in this particular instance.

"I Blame the majority leadership in Parliament for the beginning of all these mess. To some extent even the executive. Timeline, time table and for the presentation of budget was known to all of them. They also knew how long the debate will take and when the voting will take place. Where was their members?

"It is clear in my mind that there was a certain element of leadership failure on the part of the majority in terms of their strategy, tactics and awareness and it must be said. In this particular case, I think they were not sharp which has created all these mess. Otherwise, they would have approved the budget on Friday".
