“I’m unhappy with Aseidu Nketia on the Parliamentary Service Board. Aseidu Nketia has been a Member of Parliament. He is an intelligent person and maybe if he has to contribute to developing Parliament he could. My worry is his current position as the General Secretary.” he said in an interview on 'The Probe Sunday'
“It has never happened before in the life of Parliament especially when you have a very intrusive General Secretary. Even in the course of normal business of Parliament, he will come and sit there to ensure that his people vote in a certain direction,” the Parliamentary Affairs Minister bemoaned.
