Former Minister of Power, Dr. Kwabena Donkor is urging leadership of the House to ensure that the Petroleum Commission report is presented to the House as the House is in the third meeting and the second session is coming to an end.

He made this remarks when the Leader of Government Business, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu presented business statement on the floor of the House on Tuesday to start the third meeting of the second session of the seventh Parliament of the fourth Republic.

Act 821 (3) “the petroleum commission through the Minister must present to this house an annual report our petroleum resource”.

He further pointed out that, it  is of importance to this country,  it has emotional and economic importance if at the end of October this House has not still been briefed we would be failing in our oversight responsibility if this House attention is not drawn to it, he added.

Meanwhile former Deputy Minister of Education in charge of tertiary, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa called for reports of Public Universities to be presented to the House as it has delayed for a lot of academic years.

He indicated that he had raised this issue previously but there had not been any change, but added that per the University Act, National Council for Tertiary Education through the Education Minister should present this report.

“If the report comes, it helps the House carry its oversight responsibilities to draw attention to some of the issues that are problematic”.
