The Minority Head of Parliament has scattered charges that the arrangement of the Public Vote based Congress’ (NDC) General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia to the Parliamentary Assistance Board was a negotiating concession for the agreement endorsement of Account Pastor Ken Ofori-Atta.
Haruna Iddrisu at a press preparation on Wednesday said he designated the NDC General Secretary unto the Board days before President Akufo-Addo named his pastoral candidates.
Asiedu Nketia’s arrangement to Parliamentary Help Board was not in return for Ken’s endorsement
“The conversation of individuals from the Parliamentary Help Board, followed well before Ken Ofori-Atta was assigned as Priest Assign for Account. I had a conversation with the Speaker daily after his races and it was my view that he permits the two chiefs (Larger part and Minority Pioneers) to designate one individual each to the Board.
“Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu got Abraham Ossei Aidooh and I proposed, Asiedu Nketia on the grounds that they are altogether previous Individuals from Parliament. So his [Aseidu Nketia’s] arrangement has hardly anything to do with [it],” he said alluding to Ofori-Atta’s endorsement.
He proceeded, “This is only the standard violence, vindictive and disgusting deceives integrate the two. Mr Asiedu Nketia is just about as qualified as any Ghanaian to serve on the Board.”
The Tamale South official, likewise added that the postponement in reporting it has nothing to do with the endorsement of the Money Clergyman and asked that the Parliamentary Help Board individuals be permitted to “carry their skill to assemble a capable and responsible Parliament yet not permit sectarian overabundances into the neutralize the activity of Parliament.”
It was the gathering’s choice to affirm Ofori-Atta as Account Pastor
Then, Mr Aseidu Nketia says it was to the gathering’s advantage to support Ken Ofori-Atta as the Account Pastor.
As indicated by him, “if Akufo-Addo feels that he needs a stand-in as Pastor of Account, he ought to have it.”
“There was a gathering choice that let President Akufo-Addo have his Money Clergyman and that has been accomplished so what is every one of these insights concerning who concurred and who disagreed. The fact of the matter is that this was a gathering choice and it has been carried out so that is the finish of the story,” he expressed.
While asserting that the President’s choice to hold Mr Ofori-Atta debilitates the economy, he said it would potentially prompt the triumph of the NDC in the 2024 general political race.
“The conventional individual who has no food to eat, can’t take care of the water bills doesn’t mind who is endorsing whom where so the issue of the day are the issues they need to go to body electorate to manage.
“So our MPs would return and afterward manage the circumstance that influences the day by day lives of Ghanaians and as I advised you, someone who is having a toothache doesn’t mind whether Afghanistan is being bombarded somewhere else. There are sure things that are viewed as unessential to the normal grass root individual who can’t discover where his next supper is coming from,” he said.
