The immediate past chairman of the Government Assurance Committee, Yaw Frimpong Addo has commended the current leadership of the Committee for reviving and making the Committee active by embarking on verification trips both in Accra and the Central Region.

Mr. Addo noted that the intervention of the Committee has been late in coming but its better late than never.
“When leadership change, the style change, some of the programmes that we had laid down and we said we were going to push through in 2018 and 2019 did not see the light of the day but now it is underway”.

He was impressed with the enthusiasm exhibited by both the Majority and the Minority members that they have shown up in their numbers in the workings of the Committee.

“In the delay with the work of the Committee people were thinking the Committee was in coma or dead, but you can see the committee is working and doing our oversight work. It is good for our democracy”.

Again, we are following Order 174 where all comments made by Ministers of the floor of the House and anywhere would be verified.
