National Democratic Congress (NDC) MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has resigned from Parliament’s Appointments Committee.
“This was after days of careful reflection and thoughtful considerations,” the former deputy Education Minister said in a 30 March letter to the Speaker, Alban Bagbin.
“I shall like to state that the reasons for this difficult decision are both personal and on principle,” Ablakwa added.
He said his resignation from the 26-member committee takes immediate effect.
