Member of Parliament for Odododiodio Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye has bemoaned what he calls the traumatic pressure on Members of Parliament.
Complains of hardships have intensified in the wake of the rising cost of living driven by price hikes on all goods and commodities.
The price of fuel has risen to ¢10 per litre driven by a struggling cedi and rising prices of petroleum products globally.
Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye says the situation has imposed unprecedented hardships on the Ghanaian as they are struggling afford the cost of basic good, food stuffs, products and commodities.
In an interview with Sena Nombo on the Gold Power Drive, the Odododiodio MP said the situation has left Ghanaian looking to persons they deem to be privileged for assistance including MPs.
According to him, even though requests for assistance are not new to MPs, the numbers of requests MPs are seeing in recent times are unprecedented.
Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye says the situation has left MPs concerned for the survival and conditions of living of their constituents.
He said the situation has been worsened by undue delays in the release of Common Funds and a lack of development across the country.
