s are grossly misunderstood
Thanks to the CGG head, Marcella Samba Sesay and others the public has been made more aware of the fact that the primary function of Parliamentarians is making laws and not initiating development projects. Unfortunately such a misunderstanding will continue as people wanting to get rid of Parliamentarians, including potential aspirants will always tout their poor performance in initiating and implementing development projects in their area. Little wonder that some 75 percent of Parliamentarians did not return to Parliament after the last two General Elections.
One only hopes that these lessons will not be lost on our current crop of Parliamentarians as they perform their five central roles in national governance, namely: making legislation, budgetary allocations, oversight, representation of constituents and making and unmaking of government (executive) with seriousness.
For now, kudos to Honourable Tawa as he “tawas” against poor accountability. Undoubtedly towering figures will be forced to cower as the public joins the clarion call for accountability.
Ponder my thoughts.
