Ghanaian Members of Parliament have no sense of duty ...... it's money above patriotism.

Duka daya the Nigerian Armed Forces, including the Air Force, who will bolt like an okusie forced out of its burrows, at the mere mention of Boko Haram in the neighbourhood.

Haame shika ...... Give me da money ....... Kwame Alhaji, fa sika no bra ...... that's all they know.

And as lazy as earthworms!

Delays by the Mahama government in paying the financial benefits of Members of Parliament, including their share of the District Assemblies Common Fund, has sparked renewed anger in the House.

Reports indicate that many MPs are too broke to even return to their constituencies for fear of being attacked by constituents who are constantly making one financial demand or the other.

CitiNews is reliably informed that the agitations of members of the legislature are so intense that leaders of the House fear it could stall businesses scheduled for a special meeting which opened today.

The rising temperature among MPs has forced leadership of the House to call an emergency meeting scheduled for 12 PM tomorrow to discuss the burning issues ahead of formal sitting later in the day.

“The leadership [of Parliament] are not just sitting down unconcerned, we are members of Parliament together with the people we are leading so we understand their plight but we should not use this as a precondition,” the Majority Chief Whip clarified.

Parliament has been battling with financial difficulties for sometime now. A similar situation in May forced the House to postpone its resumption date from May to June.

The Minority leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu who confirmed it to Citi News, in May, said the resumption of business in Parliament, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, May 27, had been postponed to June 3 due to financial difficulties.

The Minority Leader further revealed that business in the House is expected to suffer yet another significant setback, as members would have to wait a little longer than expected, before reconvening.
