Member of Parliament for Akatsi South Bernard Ahiafor has said it is important that MPs are educated on the importance of staying around to contribute towards formulation of laws when bills get to the consideration stage.

According to the Akatsi South legislature, most often, when bills get to the consideration stage, there are only few MPs on the floor of the House, but pointed out that consideration stage of Bills form the core mandate of legislative work.

As to why his colleagues are most of the time not interested in work at the consideration stage, he responded in an interview that he cannot speak for them and added that those who are not interested does not mean they are not lawyers.

“If you take the pain to understand what goes into working of the House on Bills at the consideration stage you would enjoy it you need not to be a lawyer”, he emphasized.
