MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has in a letter to the Speaker resigned from Parliamentâ€™s Appointments Committee.
He explained that this was â€œafter days of careful reflection and thoughtful considerations.
â€œI shall like to state that the reasons for this difficult decision is both personal and on principle.â€
Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa said the Speaker must consider his resignation to take immediate effect.
As a result, the North Tongu MP stressed that he will, therefore, not be available for the vetting of President Akufo-Addoâ€™s nominees for Deputy ministerial positions.
â€œMay I extend to you leadership of the House, the Committee of Selection and the leadership of the great National Democratic Congress (NDC), my sincere gratitude for the opportunity to serve as a member of the 6th, 7th and 8th Parliaments of the Republic of Ghana,â€ concluded.
