The Minority Caucus have replied Asantehene Otumfour Osei Tutu II by challenging his claims that rejection of the E-Levy amounts to frustrating government policy.
In an interaction with the media, the Minority chief whip and MP for Asawase Constituency, Hon. Muntaka Mubarak, argued that the rejection of the E-Levy does not amount to frustrating government as the Asantehene was interpreting.
According to him, the move by the Minority Caucus is rather to safeguard the interest of the Ghanaian people who are already going through a lot of hardships.
He stressed that “all over the world, oversight is done by the minority and we are just doing our work. We don’t intend to frustrate government, we don’t to obstruct government business, we will not stand in the way of government trying to do what is right.”
According to Hon. Muntaka, the NDC Minority Group cannot just leave their role in the House and wait for the next election.
“It is the reason a budget is brought here, it is the reason four state of the nation addresses are read within the four year tenure. We can assure his majesty and all the pastors and imams that as Minority we are not here to obstruct government business. Encourage government to do what is right,” he added.
