There is no single person with sense in parliament–Odike

A two-time failed presidential candidate in general elections in Ghana, Akwasi Addai Odike, has described the Ghanaian Parliament as containing no one with the “sense” to effectively help Ghanaians.

The United Front Party (UFP) politician, according to, was on Angel FM discussing national issues.

Odike reportedly ignored all caution from the host of the programme after he was reminded that Parliament could take action against him. His response was that he was not a coward.

In the report, the politician is quoted as saying: “If a parliamentarian is sensible in his community when he or she gets to the house of the legislature he compromises his or her senses on decisions the house makes turning Parliament into a rubber stamp.”

“We are not cowards speaking. I am saying that if they have sense when they get to Parliament they compromise their senses to the detriment of the citizenry. We are not in Ghana today.”

“If cash is coming to parliamentarians, NDC and NPP MPs will all come together and endorse it… When a decision will affect the entire country they will take partisan lines. This is what is going on.”

Asked by the host Alhaji Tanko to be civil in his utterances about the “Honourables ” in view of the fact he could be dragged to the privileges committee for denigrating the reputation of the country’s lawmakers, the businessman said he is not a coward.

“What Committee… Master let us do proper analysis… We are not cowards speaking? I am saying that if they have senses when they get to parliament they compromise their senses to the detriment of the citizenry. We are not in Ghana today”, he reiterated his earlier claims saying he is unfazed.

It is not clear if the Privileges Committee of Parliament will invite the politician to answer to his attacks on them.
