Parliament has been described by Mr. Kwasi Addai Odike as incredible base on its inability to strip off the excessive powers enshrined in the president of Ghana.
“Parliament is a mere rubber stamp, it is not credible”, the statement Mr. Odike made on Angel Fm, a Kumasi based Radio.
He said parliament of Ghanaian in its administration has failed in many years to ratify policies that will help the ordinary Ghanaian. This as a result has retarded the swift development of the nation.
“Parliamentarians don’t enact policies that will help ordinary the Ghanaian, they don’t give a damn”, he narrated.
The legislature is inactive and that has lagged Ghana behind because certain portion of the 1992, especially chapter 8 which specifies the executive powers is obsolete in the affairs of the modern global world. Therefore it should have been amended longtime ago.
“Certain portion of the constitution is obsolete, its application to modern trends of affairs in the global world has dragged the nation behind”, Mr. Odike reiterated.
He believes that many powers have been given to the president and that what he says is final, meanwhile he is not God.
The businessman and politician entreated that the proper growth of the nation undoubtedly depends on parliament shredding the excessive powers of the president and transfer those powers to the good people of Ghana.
