The honorable Member of Parliament for the Wa Central constituency, Dr Rashid Pelpuo has expressed concerns about the continuous dependence of Ghana on others without ensuring reciprocity.

The lawmaker is worried that the one sided relationship where Ghana is always a beneficiary is not healthy and emphasis the need for mutual agreements where Ghana stands as a mutual partner.

Contributing to a statement on the floor of the House on the trade relations between Ghana and China, the MP called for a paradigm shift from the dependency to avoid losing the country’s sovereignty to others.

Dr Pelpuo who was the Minister of State in-charge of Public Private Partnership (PPP) under the erstwhile Mahama regime urged Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs to explore other means where China can also benefit rather than the dependence on loans and grants by Ghana.
