Stop spreading falsehood, scaring businesses – Afenyo-Markin to Minority

The Majority Leader, Alexander Afenyo-Markin, has urged the Minority Caucus to cease spreading falsehood and scaring business people with misinformation.

He made this call in response to a press conference held by the Minority last week, which alleged that some state institutions and agencies were signing multi-year contracts without Parliamentary approvals.

Afenyo-Markin quoted Article 181 (5) of the Constitution, which states that only contracts between the Government of Ghana and international companies or loans require Parliamentary approval, not local contracts.

He emphasized that the Minority’s claims were unfounded and aimed at creating fear and uncertainty among businesses.

He accused the minority of deliberately sabotaging the economy by spreading false information, which they know to be untrue, solely to frighten off international businesses and deter them from investing in the country.

The Majority Leader assured that the government is committed to transparency and due process in all its dealings, including contract signings.

He cautioned the Minority to desist from spreading misinformation and instead engage in constructive dialogue to promote the nation’s development.
