Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel Nartey George has excused himself from sittings in the House over non-COVID-19 deliberations.
In a letter to the Speaker of Parliament, the Ningo-Prampram legislator said he was of the view that the House has failed to live up to expectation in times like this.
“It is my considered belief Rt. Hon Speaker that, the august House of Parliament is failing to exercise its truly intended mandate in crisis times like this. I hold the strongest conviction that we are pandering whilst the flames that may engulf the state are being stoked.”
Sam George also added that for the past two weeks, the House has met to deliberate on the Imposition of Restrictions Bill and the approval of some loans which do not directly deal with the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
