Hon Murtala Ibrahim
December 12, 2022

Member of Parliament (MP) for Tamale Central Muhammed Murtala Ibrahim has appealed to leadership of the House to reconsider their decision of Monday, December 12, 2022 sitting because some lawmakers had to engage with their constituents on Sunday and Monday.

According to him the 2023 budget is critical hence the need to have interactions with their constituents especially those of them from up Northern Ghana, and by the time they get back to Accra they will be very tired.

He stated that their ability to deliver as lawmakers hinges on how convenient it is to them to prepare and have enough time and that must be considered.

He argued that just about few weeks ago, about eighty-nine of their colleagues on the Majority side who held a press conference for the removal of the finance minister and stated that it was their constituents who informed them to take those decision; and now they equally have a decision to take on the budget statement and they have to consult their constituents which can only be carried done during the weekend and per the distance, Monday sitting would inconvenient them, especially those from the northern parts of the country.
