Member of Parliament MP for Sagnarigu constituency, Alhassan Bashiru A. Fuseini has said that playing the role of MP and Minister concurrently greatly affects the work of the house.
The MP, who doubles as minority ranking member on Communications made this comments when he was speaking on Radio Tamale’s Tudu Yeligbahira today Friday, October 15.
According to him, many of the ministers who are MPs do not get time for parliamentary proceedings, making it difficult for proper decisions to be taken, when some are not present.
The minority led by Haruna Iddrisu in Parliament put together a motion demanding immediate steps to review the 1992 constitution.
The motion, expected to be moved when the house reconvenes at the end of the month will, among others, call for a bi-partisan approach.
Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu who confirmed this, said the equal numbers in parliament makes the time ripe for such a discussion.
The last review of the Constitution was in 2010 during the late President Mills era, but the outcome of that review was never implemented.
Speaking in an interview with Joy News’, the Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, said the call for review is “for the national interest to reign supreme and not partisan interest.”
