The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has been urged to work hard in ensuring that it garners a strong majority in Parliament.
Ghana currently has a hung parliament with 137 on each side (Minority and Majority) and one independent candidate who has decided to do business with the NPP side.
NPP felt the effect of a hung Parliament during the approval of the 2022 'Agyenkwa' Budget. Some NPP Members of Parliament have narrated how their leadership had to make calls continuously just to make sure they have the numbers.
Matthew Opoku Prempeh, Minister of Energy had earlier indicated how he went to the House despite not feeling well.
Speaking in a one-on-one interview with Kwami Sefa Kayi on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Napo as the former Education Minister is popularly called said the NPP is in such a situation because of "stubbornness".
According to him, " . . never again should we have a hung parliament . . . like the Israelites; even though God was with them, they went through the wilderness for 40 years instead of 4 days because of their stubbornness; the same way due to the stubbornness of the NPP, look at what we are going through, but God will deliver us. It's a lesson and so never again..."
