Mr. Alexander Kwamena Afenyo-Markin, the Majority Leader, disclosed plans for an extended sitting of Parliament on Monday, March 4.

This decision, he clarified, stemmed from the upcoming Independence Day celebration on Wednesday, March 6, necessitating the need to compensate for the missed session.

As the Chairman of the Business Committee of Parliament, Mr. Afenyo-Markin presented the Business Statement for the forthcoming week, which spans from Monday, March 4, to Friday, March 8, 2024, during the session in Accra.

In his address to the House, Mr. Afenyo-Markin emphasized the importance of completing the scheduled business for the week, prompting the decision for an extended sitting. He urged members to adhere to the adjusted schedule accordingly.

Additionally, Mr. Afenyo-Markin, who also serves as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament (MP) for Effutu, outlined that the upcoming week would feature responses to 40 oral questions by four Ministers. These ministers, including those responsible for Education, Energy, Finance, and Roads and Highways, are slated to address inquiries in the House during the week's proceedings.
