The Member of Parliament for South Dayi who happens to be a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has given his full support for the proposed $28 million car loan tabled before parliament.
According to Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, this initiative is welcomed because some members of parliament ride in UBER to attend to the business of the house.
This according to him is quite worrying and very unsafe.
In a report filed by JoyNews, the South Dayi legislator said that members of the house deserve better than the $28 million car loan being given to them to buy vehicles.
He added that the MPs should rather be given official cars like that which is being given to state office holders.
Dafeamekpor explained that even the Electoral Commissioner has about 5 military personnel following her around in her two land cruisers.
He added that MPs are the only article 71 holders who are not given official vehicles, and that government should take the necessary steps to do the needful.
“MPs are the only category of article 71 holders who are not given an official vehicle… My position is that the government should take steps and get us official vehicles…,” he said.
