NDC MPs MUST END THEIR DISGRACEFUL ENTERPRISE OF RUNNING AWAY FROM LAWS THEY HELP PASS IN PARLIAMENT WHEN THE GENERAL PUBLIC IS UNHAPPY
The NDC cannot dispense with their chameleonic traits in the matter of the emoluments approved by Parliament for past, present and future First and Second Ladies.
When the document was tabled before Parliament, MPs from both NPP and NDC overwhelmingly endorsed it, giving the government the green light to proceed with its implementation.
A section of Ghanaians have bared their teeth to the government, expressing their vehement disagreement with the whole idea of giving legitimacy to monies already paid to the named persons in the form of allowances.
The ferocity with which Ghanaians are lambasting the Executive and Legislative arms of government has coerced some NDC MPs to go to the Supreme Court ostensibly to stampede the implementation of the very document they have embraced and passed into law.
They joined in the fine tuning of the document, accepted the recommendations wholeheartedly and when the public is aghast about it, they want to seek solace in the fact that they’re the minority and could not have stemmed the smooth passage of the law.
They forget that on issues they passionately disagree with on the floor of the House, these Minority MPs stage walkouts to express their displeasure with such topics. Why didn’t they walk out or debate the issue passionately on the floor of Parliament if they indeed were not in concert with it?
The NDC is known for these antics. They change course after their contributory inputs to a bill passed into law meet the unhappy disagreement of the populace.
When the new chamber for Parliament was promulgated, it received unanimous approval but when the people raised eyebrows, they chickened out, making the Majority take the fall for it.
Ghanaians must ask these NDC MPs critical questions for playing chess with the work they have been voted to do as the representatives of their constituents. The flip-flops are becoming one too many. No serious MPs would run away from their responsibilities. Let’s call them out over their nauseating inconsistencies.
