The Deputy Director of Elections for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Dome Kwabenya Constituency, Mr. Albert Aheto has reacted to recent rants by the Majority Leader, Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu in relation to the rejected 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy.
This comes after Parliament rejected the 2022 Budget Statement and Economic Policy on Friday November 26 after Members of Parliament from the Majority Caucus staged a walkout.
According to him, the Majority Leader has clearly failed to provide leadership for his side in Parliament during Friday’s proceedings and must be truthful to the members of his party accordingly.
“When you failed and you are dishonest in admitting same you expose yourself the more,” he stated.
He believes that Hon. Haruna Iddrisu’s explanation on why the 2022 budget must be rejected resonates well with the ordinary Ghanaians, hence their full agreement with the Minority Caucus’ decision on the 2022 Budget.
He noted that Hon Kyei Mensah Bonsu sound perturbed and unprepared for the business of the day last Friday.
“Kyei Mensah Bonsu’s flawed argument and the Rt Hon, Alban S.K Bagbin intelligence and vast experience moved Hon Kyei Mensah Bonsu’s problem from bad to worse,” he stated.
He further expressed disappointment over how the Majority Leader lost control for a first term Member of Parliament to mislead them out of the Chamber of Parliament pathetically.
He also questioned the exact thing NPP MP’s will be doing in Parliament on Tuesday, November 30, 2021, as they have made their followers to believe.
He added that “if your mother is dead and you’re telling people that she is asleep, it is just a matter of time you will be exposed.”
