Fate of Ofori-Atta: Stay by your ‘honourable’ title —  Sam George to Majority caucus

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo Prampram Constituency, Sam Nartey George, has urged the Majority caucus to vote against the embattled Finance Minister in the vote of censure.

He believes impeaching Mr. Ofori Atta is a step in the right direction in the wake of the current economic crisis worsening the plight of the citizenry.

Sam George said the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members of Parliament should do what is right to God and their conscience, thus, impeaching the Finance Minister.

Addressing his colleagues on the other side on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana on Thursday, the NDC lawmaker said, “You made the best decision for Ghana on the night of January 6 and 7 and voted Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin with the minority group. That has been the biggest blessing of this 8th Parliament.”

According to Sam George, the Majority caucus has another “opportunity to write your names in the annals of the history of this country. Do what is right before God and your conscience. It is in that Chamber when the vote is called go and cast your ballot, a secret ballot for the children we’re suffering in this country.”

Reciting a “Let Your Vote Count For Them” poem, Sam George indicated that the county needs to be salvaged because “we are in reverse gear.”

“For the mothers whose businesses have been destroyed because of the poor economic management of ken Ofori-Atta, for the taxi driver who is your constituent, who in 2016 (sic) when Ken Ofori-Atta took office was buying a gallon of petrol for GHS14, today are buying it at almost a GHS100, make your vote count for them,”

“For the nursing and teacher trainees who are struggling under this government who are your constituents, let’s your vote count for them.

“For those National Service Personnel who are your constituents and call you as MP to complain in today’s day and age, they’re being paid less than $50 a month. Let your vote count for them

“Let the businessman and woman whose business has collapsed in your constituency and you represent them in Parliament, your vote is not for Justine Kodua. Your vote is for that businessman,” he averred.

The Ningo Prampram lawmaker urged the NPP MPs, “when you go to Parliament this morning, when you walk to the chamber, know that we sit there not because we are handsome or intelligent. We sit in that chamber because people vote and queue for us and our vote in that House must be representative of this people. Do what is right by God, conscience and the essential motion that has been moved by Ken Ofori-Atta the party will still survive, the country needs to survive for your party to thrive. Vote in that essential motion to kick Ken Ofori-Atta,” he argued.
