Parliamentary Committee Formed to Explore Pension Scheme for MPs


In light of ongoing concerns regarding the welfare of former Members of Parliament (MPs), the Second Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Andrew Asiamah Amoako, has announced the formation of an ad hoc committee to consider the establishment of a pension scheme for MPs.


The decision to form the eight-member committee follows suggestions from both the Minority and Majority Chief Whips during a parliamentary tribute to the late John Akologu Tia, the former MP for Talensi.

During Friday’s parliamentary session, Amoako emphasized the importance of this initiative, stating, “Honourable members, I think this is very important for all of us.

So, a committee has been set up and looking at the members that have been assembled to look into it, I think we can be rest assured that they will come out with something good for us.”
