Oil Cash: MPs should reach a consensus – Opanyin Agyekum

Professor Kofi Agyekum, popularly known as Opanyin Agyekum has backed calls by the Minority members in Parliament to use the oil cash for infrastructure instead of for funding the free Senior High School (SHS) education.

He has also backed the Majority saying they also have a point; hence both sides should find a middle way, reach a consensus which will help the country.

The Minority in Parliament has accused the government of using oil cash to fund the free Senior High School (SHS) programme, instead of investing the money in infrastructure projects following the presentation of the 2018 annual report on the Petroleum Fund and the 2018 Reconciliation Report on the Petroleum Holding Fund by the Finance Committee.

But the Majority refuted this claim insisting that education is the best investment.

Contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM’s morning show ‘Kokrokoo’, he said it is about time politicians take off their political hats and discuss issues dispassionately to make the country develop.
