The Minority Chief Whip of Parliament Ahmed Ibrahim has exalted the government for reconsidering its position on the Governing Council of Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology KNUST concerning recent anarchism on the university’s campus.

Mr Ahmed Ibrahim in an interview with OK FM said, “the government has done well by asking for the Chancellor to form a Governing Council by Friday 2nd November appreciating the laws that bounds Universities in the country.”  

“We have laws governing our Universities and we in the minority maintain the position that, the laws be applied in resolving the recent clash on KNUST campus that resulted injuries and destroyed properties worth thousands of Ghana cedis”, he said 

The Minority is in parliament to check works of ruling government to guarantee value for money and proper management of state resources in the interest of all citizens” he added

The Member of Parliament for Banda Constituency in the Brong Ahafo Region urged the government to set its priorities straight since there is increasing pressure from Civil Society Organizations, NGOs and pressure groups all asking for the Right To Information Bill to be passed.

He said this when speaking on the passing of the Right To Information Bill which is before parliament.
“The government had the Right To Information Bill with other bills but, went to pass the other bills” he added.

Whenever we are working on the Right To Information Bill, the government will bring other bills to be considered and this slows the process of passing the Right To Information Bill which is one major role to fighting corruption in the country.
