Hon. Kwaku Kwarteng, the Member of Parliament for Obuasi West, has proposed a pragmatic approach to government spending and leadership in Ghana. In an interview on Aseda FM’s Ghana Nti Morning Show with Obarima Kwadwo Gyamfi, he revealed his stance on reducing government expenses by advocating for the use of Toyota Hilux vehicles by MPs instead of V8 vehicles.

Kwarteng emphasized that MPs and Ministers could effectively fulfill their duties without extravagant vehicles, stating that opting for Toyota Hilux vehicles would not diminish their status or efficiency. He pointed out that this move would significantly reduce government expenditure and allocate funds for other developmental projects, benefiting the nation as a whole.

Furthermore, Kwarteng addressed the issue of parliamentary size, suggesting that Ghana could operate efficiently with fewer Members of Parliament. He proposed a reduction from the current 275 MPs to 200, arguing that the resources allocated to the 75 additional MPs could be redirected to address pressing developmental issues across the country.

In his view, politicians should lead by example and demonstrate fiscal responsibility to the Ghanaian populace. By making practical decisions regarding government spending and parliamentary size, leaders can instill confidence in the public and foster a culture of accountability and efficiency within the political sphere.

Kwarteng’s remarks come in the wake of his decision to decline a ministerial position offered to him by the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo.
