The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, has admonished legislature to compel successive governments to implement their own programmes, and ignore the national development plan.

He, therefore, advocated for the formulation of a national development plan, through an inclusive approach where citizens would be allowed to make input so they can own the plan.

“I think it is time for us to redefine the roots, get a national development plan envisioned, where we will all buy into it. Get everybody once again on board, as the 1992 Constitution did, and then we will be moving in one direction.”, he stated.

Speaking at a public forum in Ho in the Volta Region to commemorate Ghana’s three decades of parliamentary democracy, Mr. Bagbin said, this should be done without political colours.

“Not for NDC to win, change the direction, for NPP to win and change the direction and leave a lot of uncompleted projects, wasting a lot of natural resources and going to beg the IMF to salvage us when we know that the IMF has never supported any society to develop. No society in the world has developed through the assistance of the IMF”, he said.
