The Member Of Parliament for the Ho west constituency in the Volta region, Hon Emmanuel Kwesi Bedzra is urging past and present government to unite in order to complete projects of past governments.
The NDC law maker said, a major disturbance on the country’s development is the abandoning of projects by successive governments.
He advised the NPP to continue with projects started by the NDC which were all for the development of the country they rule now.
Speaking on Top FMs Ghana Te Sen on Wednesday morning, the 50 year old parliamentarian said the neglecting nature of successive governments after take over from predecessors is always at the detriment of the nation and not a political party.
Hon Kwesi Bedra said the high cost of getting accommodation in the country has resulted in some Ghanaians sleeping on pavements.
Most Ghanaians on the low income level resort to sleeping in cheap rented places or even in open spaces due to financial woes.
The few capable ones will have to go through the tough agreement plans by the land lords. Some house owners take an advance of two years before granting stay to tenants.
The situation is increasingly getting worse and has caught the attention of journalist at the Top Media Group Ltd. The government in halting this issue introduced the affordable housing to provide Ghanaians with safe houses at moderate prices.
This initiative by the government seems to be going down the drain as just a few people are privileged to have a stay in the built houses.
The Ho West MP told host Yaa Titi that, there should be a plan to regulate the affordable housing project. This will afford Ghanaians a better accommodation in the next seven years at moderate rates, he added.
He accused the government of not enforcing the rent laws which is enabling land lords treat tenants in so many bad ways.
Ghana School of Survey and Mapping
He stated that the school of survey and mapping should not be closed down, instead there should be a meeting with the stakeholders to arrive at an agreement.
He advised the minister of lands and natural resource, Mr Peter Amewu to halt the closure of the school, meet with the appropriate authorities as the school is one of the outstanding properties of the country.
As a quantity surveyor, he stated that the services of the school cannot be taken out of the country hence any decision taken on the school should be in the right direction.

Galamsey and Media
Mr Bedzra applauded the media for it rise to fight against illegal minning or galamsey menace experienced by the country recently. Ghana he said have all the natural resources in world but lacking effective management from elected leaders.
The expert in environmental management said ending the menance will require the provision of job to the person engaged in the activity.
He further advised the NPP administration to end galamsey before planting foods for jobs before or risk losing planted foods to the galamsey menace.
I was not shocked my party lost, he said on Ghana Te Sen. The picture was clear; no attention was paid to the grassroots members and the primaries were poorly held.
He denied that the party was in crisis but rather preparing effectively for the 2020 elections.
On the issue of the next presidential candidate to lead the NDC, he said “I believe in ideologies and will support any one with a good one to lead the party in 2020.
According to him, Ex-President John Mahama did not cause the defeat of the party as per the Kwesi Botwey Committee report.
The NDC as a party he said is building a bridge to fill the created gap before the 2020 elections.
In conclusion, the legislature requested that national security should pick up the Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP Bugri Naabu and Gender Minister Otiko Djaba for further explanations to their recent behavior in the media domain.
