Members of Parliament (MPs) have expressed concerns after two ministers failed to appear on the floor of Parliament.

They therefore called on ministers to halt the holidaying and report for duties, as there are urgent matters to be discussed.

The calls came up after the ministers responsible for aviation, Kofi Adda, and agriculture, Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, failed to show up to respond to matters raised in Parliament.
