The deputy minority whip in Parliament, Ahmed Ibrahim, has predicted tough times for Assin Central Member of Parliament (MP), Kennedy Agyapong, as he takes up a new role.
YEN.com.gh understands that Agyapong has been appointed as the chairman of the local government and rural development committee in Parliament.
The popular lawmaker has been replaced as chairman of the communications committee by Frederick Opare-Ansah, the MP for Suhum.
The changes, per a report by Peacefmonline.com are part of a re-composition of the select and standing committees of the House, according to a report of committee of selection.
Information available suggests this has become necessary due to the need to enhance the performance and effectiveness of the committees of the House.
The Parliamentary report revealed that some chairpersons and members have been appointed as ministers of state, deputy ministers of state, regional ministers as well as deputy regional ministers.
“The frequent absence of such key members adversely impacts the effectiveness of the Committees,” the report said.
Ahmed Ibrahim is of the opinion that due to Agyapong’s busy schedule, he may be unable to give his best on that committee because working there is equally demanding.
