General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia says Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa in his letter of resignation from the Appointments Committee should have also rendered apology for the role he played in approving ministerial nominees.
Mr Ablakwa had resigned following the approval of Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance minister. He cited personal reasons and principles as reasons for his resignation.
Reacting to it on Joy News, Asiedu Nketia noted that Ablakwa went against his principles when he played a role in approving the ministers.
“The Appointments Committee approves all the Ministers by consensus and the Appointments Committee includes Hon. Ablakwa, then you come out to resign and you say because of principle, what principle?” he asked.
He added, “if your view is that these people should not be approved, it should have reflected in your position against the consensus positions at the committee and should have ventilated also on the floor of the House so that we know that this is what this man stands for.
“So, if you participate in all that and you have to resign, my humble view is that, you resign and offer some apology that you have acted in certain ways and also against certain principles you hold…”
