A visit by ghanamps.com on Friday to Parliament saw some Members of Parliament from both the Majority and Minority side coming to the House to get ready for Monday’s recall business.

Member of Parliament for Sagnarigu, Alhassan Bashir A. Fuseini noted that MPs before going on recess had been sensitized that there was the possibility of they being recalled.

According to the Sagnarigu lawmaker the recall is to deal with some business of the House on the Vigilantism Bill the Executive had referred to the House.

In an interview he noted that remotely there was a talk about the Companies code Bill, “we understand that there is some pressure from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to us to deal with this”.

He further noted that as a Minority when the Speaker feels MPs should respond to some business on the floor of the House they are ready.

Again, if we are being recalled, we are ready to work except that others who are partners who should get their work done, should also do their part, on the Minority side we are ready to do business, he stated.

“Most at times the rush to lay the blame on MPs is not fair in the sense that the Executive arm of government is even not ready, Ministers who are supposed to appear before “us” are not ready  and reports that are supposed to be available before us are not readily available”.

There are many things not ready, so sometimes shifting the blame on MPs  as if there is a culture of lateness is not fair, “I do admit that sometimes there are some issues you can take up for some degree of delay, but sometime there are other accounting factors for those delays”
