The Minority has taken a swipe at the President Nana Akufo-Addo demanding that he gives time lines for his mantra, “Ghana beyond aid”.

Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has questioned, “when do we start and when do we end this particular exercise”.

He further questioned the sources of resources being committed by the Ministry of Finance, and further asked if it is in the budget.

“one million dollars for each constituency, let one single MP stand up on the floor to say that money came to his or her constituency, let one person tell me 2017 to 2019 one million dollars has been spent on their constituencies”.

According to the Minority Leader, MPs must have ownership of their projects, and pointed out that the Ministry of Special Initiatives indicated that projects were going to constituencies, where by MPs were not aware of those projects.

“President Nana Akufo-Addo should be interested in knowing why one of the Chief Executive Officers resigned, because the authority had been made dysfunctional, let resources go to the development authorities and let them have the autonomy to spend the funds that comes for the development”.

“When we are decentralizing you are keeping monies at the, ‘flag staff house by centralizing’, the president should be frank with us that most of his flagship programs, we are seeing failures than success”.
