The Speaker of Parliament, Right Honourable Kingsford Alban Sumana Bagbin, has asked Government to provide adequate resources for the operations of Parliament and the Judiciary.
This he iterated when the majority leader and minister for parliamentary affairs, Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu read the 2021 budget on behalf of the finance minister-designate. He said Parliament and the Judiciary were arms of Government that must be strengthened to function efficiently.
He noted that Members of Parliament would not continue to work from their homes to do government business, hence the need to resource the Legislature to function effectively. Mr. Bagbin said this after the presentation of the Business Statement of Parliament for next week ahead of the Budget Statement.
The Business Statement was presented by the Deputy Chairman of the Business Committee, Mr. Affenyo Markin. The Speaker warned that the House would not entertain noise making by members during the debate on the Budget next week and urged the MPs to do proper analysis and scrutiny of the Budget in the best interest of the people of Ghana.
