We take too much entrenched positions in Ghana – Muntaka

Member of Parliament for Asawase Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak has said both National Democratic Congress (NDC) and New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament (MPs) take too much entrenched positions on issues in Ghana.

He said this is not helpful to the development of Parliament and the country in general.

Euologising the late former Member of Parliament for Old Tafo Dr Anthony Akoto Osei in Parliament on Wednesday, March 29, the former Minority Chief Whip said “we are taking soo much-entrenched positions, both sides,  those in government taking soo much-entrenched positions, those in the opposition taking extreme entrenched position.

“I can bet you, this is not helpful to our country, it is not helpful to the development of Parliament. The better both sides begin to think that there is a national interest above the NPP interest and above the NDC interest, we will be sinking our country.”

Dr Akoto Osei’s death was announced on the official Facebook page of the Parliament of Ghana on Monday, March 20.

“Former Old Tafo MP, Hon. Dr Anthony Osei Akoto passes away. May he rest in peace,” Parliament announced.

Dr Akoto Osei was in the cabinet of President John Agyekum Kufuor as Minister of State for Finance and Economic Planning.

He was a member of Parliament for the electoral district of Old Tafo in the Ashanti region.

He worked as deputy minister for Finance and Economic Planning in May 2003 and was a major economic adviser to the government.

He was elevated to substantive Minister for Finance and Economic Planning after the death of the then Minister Kwadwo Baah Wiredu.

He served in that role until 6 January 2009 when the government was handed over to the National Democratic Congress who had won the 2008 General Elections.

In February 2017, Osei was sworn in as Minister of Monitoring and Evaluation after being nominated by President Nana Akufo-Addo and going through the vetting process in the parliament of Ghana.
