A Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has said they will not let down their constituents and to the large extent Ghanaians.
He called on NDC supporters most especially and Ghanaians at large to trust the NDC Caucus in Parliament for protecting only the interest of Ghana.
He said the determination the NDC Caucus showed in electing Speaker of Parliament Right Honourable Alban Bagbin should be an enough proof that the NDC in this 8th Parliament is best prepared to serve just the interests of Ghanaians.
He was reacting to some concerns raised by Ghanaians and NDC supporters about the nomination of some former ministers by President Akufo-Addo to serve in his second term.
In social media post, Honourable Ablakwa who himself is a member of the vetting Committee in Parliament said
“The conspiracy theories against NDC Members of Parliament’s Appointments Committee and the larger NDC caucus are most unfair, vexatious, malicious and downright offensive.
We have demonstrated enough grit since the election of Speaker to prove to the world that we cannot be influenced by inducements neither are we pushovers. We are simply unbribable and absolutely impenetrable!
The Ghanaian people didn’t bestow upon us these impressive numbers in Parliament only to use it for dirty deals with the forces of darkness. That will represent a betrayal of the people’s mandate in the most obscene and unconscionable terms.
We are confident that our work on the committee shall vindicate our integrity.
Yes, we shall not be a group of reckless obstructionists but we do not intend to serve as mere conveyor belts or jinxed accomplices either.
May the Lord be our helper”
There are many concerns about nominees such as Mavis Hawa Koomson, Dominic Nitiwul, Ken Ofori Atta, Ursula Owusu Ekuful etc with many Ghanaians saying how they discharged their duties in their previous portfolios is enough proof to why their nominations must be rejected by parliament.
