The Managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr has been taken aback by a recent revelation that members of the Parliamentary Service Board flew all the way to oil rich Dubai to have a meeting.
He bemoaned that it was a matter for great concern that for people elected into office to serve they go about making reckless and insensitive decisions that continue to heap the burden on the ordinary Ghanaian.
Speaking on Peace FM’s Kokrooko morning show, the veteran journalist noted that we are all to blame for what we are witnessing however as it is we who voted them into power and so those saying it is God’s will should stop.
“People say that the parliament we have is what gave us but the fact is that we chose it ourselves. During the primaries, had we not engaged in violence, and when we were going for the polls, had some party executives not insisted that the people they wanted should surely go, and if everybody had kept their word going into the elections, we wouldn’t have had all these.”
“So, this is all our fault and the parliament we have is what we bargained for and so we must work to ensure it gets better,” he stated.
He went on to express his shock and disappointment at the revelation that members of the parliamentary board could not find anywhere in Ghana to have a meeting but decided to fly to Dubai.
“The things happening in parliament are just so many and in all of these there is a lot of apprehension. Reading the newspaper, I chanced on something that happened recently. They say the Parliamentary Service Board went all the way to Dubai for a meeting. Is it true?” he dumbfounded Kwesi Pratt found himself asking.
