Mahama Ayariga, Member of Parliament for Bawku Central has charged the Ghanaian populace to keep abreast with the activities of the 8th Parliament.
The second Akufo-Addo administration has equal representation on both sides of parliament. Therefore, the probability of there being a unanimous agreement or disagreement on issues is very much existent.
During ClassFMs ‘The Watchdog’ with Eugene Bawelle on Saturday, 23 January 2021, Mahama Ayariga aired his views on why Ghanaians should take interest in the dealings of the 8th Parliament.
“I think that this parliament presents a unique opportunity for working together. There are two things. You talk about consensus. There is a consensus to do the right thing. There’s also the possibility of a consensus to do the wrong thing. So I don’t think that the public should just sit aside and say’ because the numbers are equal the right thing will be done in parliament,” he explained.
“I think the public should remain eternally vigilant and watch the parliament to make sure that the opportunities that the numbers provide are really realized,” the Bawku Central Member of Parliament further stated.
