The Ameri deal is perfect because both sides in parliament had no problem with the agreement. This is the position of Member of Parliament for the Damongo constituency, Mutawaikilu Adam who is also a member of the Mines and Energy committee in parliament.

“Parliament did a very efficient job when the agreement was laid before us” he said.

“We did all that we could to arrive at our conclusion there was no open disagreement between the NDC and the NPP of parliament in that committee. We had a unanimous conclusion and then submitted it to parliament and it was passed.” He told Citi Fm on Monday.
