Member of Parliament for Adaklu, Governs Kwame Agbodza has said the Executive arm of government is wasting the time of lawmakers and putting them at risk when there is not much work to be done on the floor of the House.

According to him cabinet had to meet virtually, same with the Supreme Court because of the fear that the Chief Justice might have come into contact with some person feared to have tested positive.

Mr. Agbodza lamented and said despite the fact that some persons in Parliament had tested positive to the coronavirus, the House is still sitting, government is not showing leadership by  bring business to the floor of the House.

He cited the example of meetings of the House starting late, two hours behind the normal time and further lamented that the House is sitting simply for the Constitutional Instrument to mature to regulate the conduct of the upcoming Presidential and Parliamentary elections.

“We are passing a lot of tax exemptions for government  chronic  companies, it is not fair to Ghanaians, we are unable to start at 10:00am and close at 2:00pm, we sit beyond that and most of the things we do is the land bill”.

As to what the Minority side can do in the light of this development, he responded by saying that they can refuse to come to the House because of the registration process going on, more so when government is not serious.

In additionally, when the Minority does not come to the House the current administration would go shouting on the roof top and tell Ghanaians, the Minority are running away from their responsibilities, he lamented.
