President Nana Akufo-Addo has urged chiefs and people of the Asewase Constituency to change sitting MP Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka because he has nothing new to offer.
Addressing a gathering of zongo chiefs in the Ashanti Region, the President said Muntaka has over stayed his time in parliament.
“Muntaka has stayed too long in the Parliament House; he has nothing new to do there so allow another person to also go there and try so that we can realise the development that we want,” the crowd responded with loud cheers.
According to Akufo-Addo, the NDC MP for Asewase has lost his substance an a legislator and must kicked out.
The President’s comments are, however, a deviation from the initiative of the ministry of parliamentary affairs, in which the minister, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu has been working with civil society to get the high attrition rate in Ghana’s Parliament in check.
Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu the Member of Parliament(MP) for Suame, who would be seeking a seventh term believes that, “Parliament is as strong as its members make it”.

He has described the high attrition rate as “a shameful blot on Ghana’s political system”.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the communications minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has indicated that the New Patriotic Party (NPP), under President Akufo-Addo has fulfilled 80% of its campaign promises.
This, according to her, explains why Ghana has been identified as one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.
