The meeting itself originally planned to take two hours run for five hours.

The meeting ended without a consensus, Graphic Online gathered.

Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for the Tamale North Constituency in the Northern Region has said President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo “wears a crown of shame” following Transparency International’s assessment of Ghana’s fight against corruption.

Ghana was recently ranked 80th out of 180 countries on the 2019 global Corruption Perception Index (CPI) with a score of 41 per cent, an exercise carried out by international organisation Transparency International (TI).

Making reference to the CPI on TV3’s New Day, the Tamale North legislator observed the country’s fight against corruption is the worst under Akufo-Addo’s watch.
