The selfish decision made by some of our colleagues in parliament to vote against the collective decision of the party and to the larger extend the country is worrisome and unfortunate. It is particularly disheartening because these MPs were not loyal to their party and to the nation as a whole.
The NDC, as an opposition party on several platforms has impress upon the president to reduce the size of his bloated government. The party had also made it clear that it would vote against the government's nominees as a sign of protest against the government's failure to reduce the size of the government.
This move has raised concerns about the loyalty of these MPs to the party and the nation as a whole. Many Ghanaians believed that these MPs have betrayed the trust of their constituents and the party they represent by going against the party's decision to force the hands of the president to downsize the number of ministers in the government.
The disappointment felt by Ghanaians is not just because the desired reduction in the number of ministers was not achieved, but also because the actions of these MPs undermined the integrity of the democratic process. It is important that MPs act in the best interests of the nation, and not be swayed by personal interests or external influences.
In conclusion, the decision by some of the NDC MPs to vote in favor of the government's nominees on Friday 24th March 2023 is a source of disappointment for many Ghanaians. It suggests that these MPs were not loyal to their party or to the nation as a whole and raises questions about the integrity of the opposition who are poised to take power come December 2024.
