The possibility that Mr. Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), appointed to serve on the Parliamentary Service Board (PSB) to leak classified information from the Board to the public is high, First Deputy Speaker of Parliament suspects.
“Usually, hardly do we hear from the members of PBS publicly. …Every time he is out and my fear is that his frontline approach may influence Parliamentary Service”, Member of Parliament (MP) for Bekwai Constituency Joseph Osei Owusu has stated.
According to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) stalwart, who spoke on Kumasi-based Wontumi TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com, Mr. Asiedu Nketia who doubles as the General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) maybe influenced by his active political role
“But this time, my fear is Mr. Asiedu Nketia who is a frontline politician maybe affected or influenced by his frontline approach in dealing with politics”, the Bekwai lawmaker pointed out to host during an in-studio discussion
“Whatever they suggest is between the Speaker of Parliament, leaders and the clerk to implement”, Hon. Joseph Osei Owusu added.
