‘NDC MPs lack trust’

A member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Nii Kpakpo Samoa Addo, has chastised the party’s Members of Parliament for failing to live up to expectations of the party and Ghanaians at large, when it comes to “critical national issues”.

He, therefore, indicated that NDC legislators cannot be trusted on issues. His comment is in reference to the passage of three revenue bills in Parliament on Friday March 31, 2023. The bills are expected to play a critical role in restoring Ghana’s economic stability and growth.

Speaking in an interview with the media, Samoa Addo said: “As we sit here, there is no official opposition in government”.

According to him, “majority of our NDC members have lost trust in our MPs because they have failed us on critical national issues.”


“So, if we are doing a government of national unity, let’s do a government of national unity, which is clearly what we are doing now.

“I don’t expect anybody to criticise President Akufo-Addo for the size of his government anymore because we’ve added more ministers and it was a parliamentary decision. And I didn’t see the NDC standing up and voting en masse,” Samoa Addo stated.

“The Parliament of Ghana is working in the national interest of Ghana….Three bills that impose extra taxes on Ghanaians have been approved, at the end of the month, if you look at the amount of taxes, how do you expect the ordinary businessman to survive?,” he quizzed.
