Deputy Majority Leader, Alex Afenyo Markins has claimed that the Minority side Parliament are determined to frustrate the second term of President Akufo-Addo, starting with the rejection of some appointees of President Akufo-Addo.
This comes after Mr Okudzeto Ablakwa claimed that Minority MPs are forced to vote against the approval of the Health, Foreign Affairs, and Information Minister for hiding information from the Committee with regards to the frontiers deal.
Reacting to it, Mr Afenyo Markins was quoted by mynewsgh saying: “If Ablakwa wants to state the predetermined position of the NDC, he should say so. He shouldn’t find a way of trying to give the dog a bad name just for the purpose of hanging it. We’ve had a very cooperative engagement. Hearing is a matter of public discourse.
“Everybody is seeing it. You don’t expect to have 100 percent per someone’s subjective expectations but we’ve heard prior to the vetting that there was a predetermined agenda to find fault on some nominees. If that political path is what he wants to pursue, so be it. What else can we do? But in our constitution, qualification for the office of a minister is there.
“We’ve not met to discuss and make a final determination regarding the nominees so if he throws it out there that his side may vote against some of them, I find it as a political agenda to more or less frustrate government business,” he said.
