Most Ghanaian MPs Are On ‘Life Support’ Pressure Pills – Salam Mustapha Reveals

National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has revealed that most Members of Parliament (MPs) are on Pressure Pills which is sustaining their lives while in parliament.

According him, most MPs due the work and demands from their constituents have developed the deadly disease which does not bode well for the health of the lawmakers.

The NPP executive made this revelation during a discussion on Peace FM’s flagship morning show ‘Kokrokoo’.

He explained that the MPs receive so much pressure from their constituents and Ghanaians at large that by the time they leave office, they are worn out and due to the amount of pressure on them, they have resorted to taking pills to steady their nerves.

“What happens in the course of service when the pressure comes to take everything away from you and leaves you virtually with nothing?”, he rhetorically asked.

“When you go to the House of Parliament, a lot of them are running on pressure pills because every day they wake up to demands…Any time you will see a former MP, you don’t see them in a state that they are happy”, he stated.

The New Patriotic Party(NPP) will go to the polls to elect new Parliamentary Candidate for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.

The 18 Members of Parliament are on the side of the New Patriotic Party; it is also rumored that some Parliamentarians on the political divide, particularly the National Democratic Congress, are also planning to follow their NPP colleagues.

The NPP MPs who will not join the next Parliament include the Majority Lead­er and MP for Suame, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu who has served in the House for seven terms, First Deputy Speaker and MP, Bekwai, Joseph Osei-Owusu with four terms, Kennedy Ohene Ag­yapong, Assin Central with six terms, Joe Ghartey, Essikado-Ketan (five terms), Samuel Atta Akyea, Akyem Abuakwa South (four terms) and Dan Botwe, Okere (four terms) among others.
