North Tongu lawmaker, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has resigned from the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
The National Democratic Congress legislator intimated in a letter to the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin, that he took the decision to excuse himself from the committee “after days of careful reflection and thoughtful considerations.”
Dated Tuesday, March 30, 2021, Okudzeto Ablakwa asked the Speaker to consider his resignation to take effect immediately.
He, however, was economical divulging the exact rationale behind his sudden resignation from the committee he takes delight in grilling nominees when they appear before it.
Mr. Ablakwa only indicated that it is “both personal and on principle”.
In light of his resignation, the former Education Minister stated that he will not be available for the vetting of President Akufo-Addo’s nominees for Deputy ministerial positions.
To this end, the Member of Parliament for North Tongu said, “May I extend to you leadership of the House, the Committee of Selection and the leadership of the great National Democratic Congress (NDC), my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to serve as a member of the 6th, 7th and 8th Parliaments of the Republic of Ghana.”
