North Tongu MP, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has criticized President Akufo-Addo for failing to submit the annual report to Parliament as mandated by the Presidential Office Act, 1993 (Act 463). Mr Ablakwa described this failure as “totally reprehensible,” highlighting the importance of the report in providing transparency regarding the number and ranks of presidential staffers.

Expressing his frustration, Mr Ablakwa emphasized that despite reminders, President Akufo-Addo has yet to comply with Act 463 which requires the submission of the annual report within three months after the end of each financial year. The lack of this report, he noted, hinders Parliament’s ability to exercise oversight and pursue financial accountability effectively.

In a recent Facebook post, the lawmaker revealed that a search conducted in Parliament indicated that President Akufo-Addo had not submitted the 2023 Annual Report by the legally mandated deadline at the end of March.

Mr Ablakwa stressed that such breaches undermine Parliament’s lawful mandate and cannot be considered a proud legacy for the President, asserting that Ghana deserves better.

Mr Ablakwa is demanding the immediate submission of the Annual Report to Parliament.
