Member of Parliament for Efutu, Hon. Alex Afenyo-Markin has abandoned the Economic Community of West African State (ECOWAS) Parliament, two days after showing up to sign for his allowance   in Abuja.

The Efutu law maker was spotted in his office in Ghana’s Parliament two weeks ago, whiles sitting in the ECOWAS Parliament was on going.   ECOWAS Parliament, started its three weeks session on the 10th of May and will end on the 26th of May 2017.

Checks carried out by this paper within the corridors of ECOWAS Parliament in Abuja, can reveal that there is some level of uneasiness among the Ghanaian delegation and officials, as the Efutu MP  has sign for allowance to cover the three weeks period but showed up for only two days.

Members of Ghana’s delegation to ECOWAS Parliament were lip tight when this paper contacted them for their comment on the issue via phone and WhatsApp.

Hon Samson Ahi when reached on phone by this paper directed that, the leader of the delegation should be contacted, since he will   be the best positon to address the issues raised.

Leader of the delegation and   Majority Chief whip Hon. Ameyaw Cheremeh when contacted by this paper to find out if, he had granted permission to the Efutu legislator?

For  three days in running,  leader of the delegation had not responded, the only comment he made on  the second day was, “I am in Parliament, please” as at the time of filling this story the leader has not responded to the enquiries made on the Efutu MP

The Majority side of the delegation to the ECOWAS Parliament is made up of, Hon    Kwasi Ameyaw-Cheremeh, Hon.  Alexander Afenyo-Markin, Hon. Ama Pomaah Boateng Hon.  Kwabena Appiah-Pinkrah and Hon Fredrick Opare Ansah.

Whiles the Minority side is made up of, Hon Clement Kofi Humado, Hon Mahama Ayariga and Hon Sampson Ahi.
