Don’t go into Politics for money, but leave a Legacy-Former MP
The former member of Parliament for Gomoa West, lawyer Kojo Abban, has described the monetization of Ghana’s political space as a recipe for disaster.
According to him it is not the responsibility of the MP to create jobs, construct roads and provide other infrastructures, but to enact laws in parliament.
The Former Deputy minister of health said these in an exclusive interview with Kofi Nkum on Osimpam fm’s morning show, “Ghana Ntsi’.
He indicated that some developmental achievements in constituencies of some well to do members of Parliament has put pressure on other colleagues to look for money through every means, wether good or bad to do same, adding that it is for these reasons that most of them scramble for ministerial appointment.
He called on Ghanaians not to look for only confident people, because if they are thieves, such persons can equally steal from the public purse, adding that Ghanaians have contributed to the corruption in the country with their attitudes and choice of leaders.
Hon. Abban, reminded Ghanaians who wish to go into politics, to be committed in living a legacy in parliament and society at large.
“A lot of people are in politics for money not because they want to serve. If people refuse to talk about these, Ghana will go to the wrong place’, he stressed.
