The Chief Executive Officer of GIHOC distilleries, Maxwell Kofi Jumah, has chastised the Minority in parliament, describing the opposition party as a “slogan hitting party”.
According to him, members of the Minority cannot stand up to any in-depth discussion.
“The Minority has not been effective, they are a slogan hitting party. The minority is just making noise and can’t stand up to any in-depth discussion” the former Mayor for Kumasi said on Starr Chat with Bola Ray.
Mr Jumah who is also a former Member of Parliament for Asokwa, however, revealed that Ghana’s Parliament has institutional challenges that must be fixed as soon as possible.
He cited MPs inability to sponsor bills as one of the challenges.
The CEO also showered praises on the Majority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu for doing ‘his best’ in his position.
December 17 Referendum
The vocal for former Local Government Minister, in the Kufuor administration, also declared a ‘Yes’ vote for the upcoming December 17 referendum.
The referendum seeks to either amend Article 55 (3) of the 1992 constitution to allow political parties participate in local level elections or not.
There have been various campaigns ahead of the exercise.
The National House of Chiefs is divided over the exercise with persons such as the Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Panin campaigning for a ‘Yes’ vote while President of the House, Togbe Afede XIV and some of his peers are campaigning for a ‘No’ vote.
