I Did Not Answer Your Question because You Are A First Time MP – Afenyo Markin Tells NDC MP

Afenyo Markin, Deputy Majority Leader yesterday presented the Business Statement for next week to the House. Two of the interesting things that the Minority had been expecting has to do with when President Akufo-Addo will be coming to the house to present SONA 2022 and when the E-Levy bill will be reintroduced. All these 2 were missing from the Business statement for next week.

After the presentation of the statement, law makers were given the chance to ask questions about the Business Statement. On interesting question came from Hon. Daniel Ohene Darko, MP for Upper Denkyira West. The NDC MP’s question had to do with a room allocated to drivers of MPs. According to Hon. Darko, initially there was a room where the drivers could rest awaiting the MPs they served but currently that room had been taken leaving the drivers of the MPs stranded. He asked for a solution for the problem.

This question from Hon. Darko was part of a number of questions asked by other MPs like Governs Agbodza of Adaklu and Kofi Adams of Buem. Yet, when Afenyo Markin returned to the podium to respond he ignored the question from Hon. Darko. This got Joe Osei Owusu asking why that particular question was ignored. 

In response Afenyo Markin said the questions he answered were the relevant ones. Interestingly, he noted that because Hon. Darko was a first time MP he decided to speak to him one on one and not in the house. He added that the mandate of the Business Committee is to arrange the schedule for proceedings for the following week and not address problems that MPs had. This got Osei Kyei Owusu telling Afenyo Markin that he should have made this answer clear instead of ignoring the question.
