In a Facebook post, Mr. Mahama said, “Unfortunately, Ghanaians were deeply disappointed yesterday when some members of the Minority for some parochial and personal interests voted against the principled position adopted by the party”
Mr. Mahama has lashed out at that MP “Responsibility for this betrayal requires serious soul searching and learning to put national interests over personal interests.”
A few weeks ago, our NDC group in Parliament announced its principled position not to approve new ministers until the President has taken steps to reduce the size of his government.
This position is supported by a large section of Ghanaians and public advocacy groups.
Unfortunately, Ghanaians were deeply disappointed yesterday when some members of the Minority for some parochial and personal interests voted against the principled position adopted by the party.
Those responsible for this betrayal should do some serious soul-searching and learn to put national interest over personal interest.
Equally disappointing is the refusal of the President to seize the opportunity to streamline and reduce his administration when the NPP flag bearer candidate and the Minister of Leadership resigned.
Clearly, in this time of dire crisis and distress, President Akufo-Addo, the NPP administration, and some of our parliamentarians are not in tune with the mood of Ghanaians.
I still believe as I said in Ho recently, that in this time of crisis, the government can still run efficiently with no more than 60 ministers.
To grassroots members and all Ghanaians who are disappointed by this insensitivity, I urge you not to despair.
2024 offers us an opportunity to work hard to defeat this reckless government that seeks to destroy democracy and the livelihood of Ghanaians – an opportunity for us to work and build the Ghana we want from January 07, 2025.
