The Minority Leader in Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu has urged Parliamentarians to stop abusing the process of acquiring visa in order to earn and maintain their dignity at the various Embassies in the country.

Supporting a statement made by the Ranking Member of Foreign Affairs Committee Okudzeto Ablakwa, the Leader said to whom much is given much is expected and for that matter Members of Parliament should stop the abuses of the processes and the abuse of the privileges they have so that the Embassies will treat them with dignity and honor.

The Tamale South Member of Parliament who expressed dismay at the inhumane treatment of visa applicants said’’ these Embassies couldn’t be borthered if the sun is scorching, if it’s raining or even if there is a category five hurricane, they simply don’t seem to care’’.

He did not rule out a reciprocal treatment if the Embassies continue to treat Ghanaians with disdain.

‘’If they want to treat us with honour, we must treat them with honour, if they will not respect us, we owe them no respect’’ he said in protest.

He also blamed Ghanaian Embassies outside who also are not treating Ghanaians abroad well whiles urging colleague MPs, the Executive and other stakeholders to work and improve conditions in Ghana to earn us the dignity we deserve.
