Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu has urged parliament to ensure that only projects with adequate funding  are given the green light to be executed in the country.

He said over the years, Parliament has not given much attention to Article 35 clause seven of the Constitution which stipulates that projects can commence when there is availability of funds and that has resulted in several uncompleted projects dotted across the country.

The Minority Leader was speaking in Ho at the opening of the post-budget workshop organized for Members of Parliament to analyze the 2021 budget statement.

Making reference to the Rwandan model, Mr Iddrisu said the country needs to adopt a policy where all outstanding projects of previous governments are continued by current administrations to accelerate development.
