- He said that the present government needs more time to settle down
- He admonished his colleagues to rather suggest solutions to shortcomings they identify
- He also promised to play a role in the appropriate distribution of market stalls in Cape Coast
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) member of parliament for Cape Coast South, Kweku George Ricketts-Hagan Jnr, has called on Ghanaians to give the present administration time to settle down, as they are still young.
He implored critics of the government to judge them after the tenure of office, as they are only six months in office.
The NDC MP advised the minority in parliament to instead point out the shortcomings of the present government, so that mechanisms could be put in place to correct them,.
The lawmaker believes that as much as his colleagues wish to constantly put the government on its toes, it is imperative that the government is given space to work for the benefit of Ghanaians.
He added that life in opposition isn’t all about a constant criticism of the government, especially one that took charge just six months ago.

Ricketts – Hagan, who is also a former deputy minister of finance, as well as a former minister for the central region, opined that regional ministers and Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCEs) were appointed not long ago, hence they need support, rather than criticisms.
On the issue of the politicization of market stalls in Cape Coast, he stated that it was the responsibility of the mayor of the city to use the right means to ensure that the right people got the stalls. He added that he would do his bit to ensure peace in Cape Coast
