MP for Krachi West
July 3, 2023

Member of Parliament (MP) for Krachi West, Adjoa Helen Ntoso has drawn the attention of Parliament to a practice where toilet rolls are vanishing from washrooms of lawmakers’ offices at Job 600 few hours after they are placed in the wash room by the cleaners.

According to her she was embarrassed last week Thursday, June, 29, 2023 when she had an important visitor who wanted to use the MPs washroom and there was no toilet roll in the washroom.

She drew the attention of leadership of the House of the development on Friday, June 30, 2023 after the Business statement for the week was presented.

Madam Helen Ntoso in an interview with pointed out that after the Thursday incident the following day being Friday, she visited the washroom just to be sure of what she witnessed the previous day, “unfortunately there was no toilet rolls in the washrooms”, she said.

She emphasized that the day in question was not the first time that has happened since it has been raised at joint caucus meetings of the House. “We should not only appear nice but our washrooms and environment should also be on point”.

The MP said she met with the cleaners just after raising the issue on the floor of the House and they informed her that they placed toilet rolls at the washroom but within a short time they noticed that they have been picked.

And it further came out that it’s not only the toilet rolls that they have issues with, there are same problems with tissues that are used in wiping hands, as cleaners express surprise themselves at the development.

The Krachi West lawmaker recounted that in 2018 someone was arrested for collecting toilet rolls in the Parliament washrooms.

She has urged leadership to take the issue up to ensure that when visitors to the MPs come they will use the wash room comfortably and if leadership does not address the matter she will be compelled to move a step further by writing to the House committee, as was advised by the First Deputy Speaker who presided last week Friday.
