Minority members in Parliament have expressed anger at President John Mahama for indicating they sleep in the House and allow loans to be approved without proper scrutiny.

The President, at a ‘Changing Lives, Transforming Ghana’ rally in the Volta Region on Thursday, said it was Parliament which approved all the loans the government had used for development projects.

He indicated that if NPP MPs were among those approving the loans and yet turned round to ask what the funds were being used for, then it made sense to say that they had been sleeping in Parliament.

But, in a response to president's comments, Deputy minority leader in parliament, Dominic Nitiwul said only external loans pass through parliament.

"The president is acting like somebody walking on the street, who may not be abreast with what is happening with loans...something is happening to him. He should respect himself," Nitiwul told Accra-based Metro TV.

The Deputy Minority Leader added that the president's comment will spell doom for proceedings in parliament.

"I can see a very bad parliament in the election year...He (Mahama) should go and fly ministers from abroad to come and approve loans. You will see what will happen from Monday", Nitiwul fumed.
