I will not address any MP as honourable – Kwame Pianim


Feb 3, 2022

Senior economist, Kwame Pianim has indicated that he will not refer to members of Ghana’s parliament as “honourables.”

Members of Ghana’s 8th Parliament, according to a stalwart of the ruling New Patriotic Party, have lost the right to be regarded as honorables as a result of the numerous brawls they have engaged in.

Mr Pianim stated at the unveiling of the John Evans Atta-Mills Memorial Heritage in Accra on Tuesday, February 1, 2022, that the only way he will change his mind and address the MPs as honorables is if they give a public apology to the Ghanaian people.

“I will no longer address any member of Parliament as honorable.” “I will not address any of them as honorable until they apologize to the people,” he declared, adding that “they are diminishing Ghana’s sparkling brand as a beacon of democracy.”

Mr Pianim advised the present crop of politicians to imitate the late former President of Ghana, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, who he noted placed public interest over partisan gain, during an occasion where he eulogized the late former President of Ghana, Prof. John Evans Atta Mills.

“Professor Mills was oblivious to political affiliations. “We need people who can span political divides, and Mills had obviously crossed the political line,” he said.

During the election of a new speaker in Ghana’s 8th Parliament, an open brawl broke out between the now minority and majority sides.

Since the night of January 6, 2021, the house has seen multiple battles between the two sides over various policy and decision disagreements.

Many people have criticized the house and its members for their lack of peace as a result of the fights in parliament.
