General Secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) says contributions of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are very necessary.
According to John Boadu even though the contributions may be diabolical and cynical, he believes the work of an opposition party is to put the governing party in check.
Mr. Boadu was speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen Wednesday following minority’s decision to make public details purchase of office complex for Ghana’s chancery in Oslo Norway.
A six-bedroom apartment alleged to have been bought by Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs at the cost of 12.21 million dollars is at a center of parliamentary scrutiny.
Member of Parliament for South Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, alleged the price of the building, initially sold
He also accused the Foreign Affairs ministry of not doing due diligence in the supposed purchase agreement, an accusation the ministry has dismissed.
But Boadu believes that in as much as the opposition party cannot be compared to the NPP, it’s not a bad idea for the NDC to take
“The NDC just came into office to squander our resources but we came putting things in order. The contribution of the Opposition is very necessary no matter how cynical & diabolical it may look like.
“Therefore if they bring further due diligence and government thinks its okay, then we won’t disregard their ideas” he said.
That notwithstanding, Mr Boadu lauded the government for what he describes as fastest way to deal with the issue.
