The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and Member of the Parliamentary Service Board, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah hosts expressed that the NPP’s issue with his Parliamentary Service Board arrangement is unjustifiable.
As per him, the reaction of the NPP’s issue to his arrangement is stunning, particularly since the Speaker was not committed to choose anybody from the NPP for a put on the Board yet at the same time did.
“Before, the Speaker consistently assigned individuals on the Parliamentary Service Board from his ideological group on the grounds that absolutely, the Speaker would normally not choose anybody from the opposite side. In this specific case, I will say that Speaker Bagbin has been generous in permitting NPP to name one individual from their side to join the Board. So I was very amazed when I heard that the NPP was all the while protesting my designation by the Speaker as an individual from the Board. I don’t figure he ought to have permitted any previous NPP MP to be assigned by any stretch of the imagination.”
Speaking, Mr. Nketiah contended that as long as he met the models for selection, the Speaker didn’t perpetrate a wrongdoing by designating him. He added that this was an encouragement to help the Speaker to release his obligations.
“Parliament is the bastion of legislative issues so it is fascinating to hear individuals saying that we shouldn’t bring governmental issues into parliament. The administrators know why they make certain laws and they know why they put certain limitations on certain individuals not involving certain positions and in this specific case, they didn’t discuss anyone’s other task in Politics. For this situation, the rules is that you must be a previous individual from parliament and I was one for a very long time so I don’t have a clue who is preferred qualified over myself.”
Asiedu Nketiah was named as one of four people to comprise the new Parliamentary Service Board on Monday, March 29, 2021, by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.
Mr. Bagbin declared the names as a component of a report he got from an uncommon warning board set up for that reason.
The Parliamentary Service Board is led by the Speaker and oversees the exercises of the council.
Different individuals from the Board are Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Haruna Iddrisu and Mr. Abraham Osei Aidoo.
