General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia has indicated that the party had no need to meet over the resignation of Okudzeto Ablakwa from the Appointments Committee because the letter was not addressed to them.
According to him, Mr Ablakwa addressed his letter to the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, however, the matter has been resolved.
“We didn’t feel the need to hold [a] meeting over that resignation at all. First of all, the letter was addressed to the Speaker of Parliament, not to the party or the leadership of the party in parliament. We haven’t had any meeting about it,” he said on Joy News.
“My personal view is that I don’t understand the letter sufficiently to be able to express an opinion. Because the letter simply said he is resigning based on principle and also on personal reasons and that he will not be participating in the vetting of deputy ministers. It is so open-ended. When you say principle, what principle are we talking about,” he said.
