Parliament is set to prioritise some three crucial bills as it begins its first sitting of the year.

The bills include the age-old Right to Information Bill, the Affirmative Action Bill and the Code of Conduct Bill.

The bills are expected to be debated extensively and passed in the coming days.

Class91.3FM’s parliamentary correspondent, Ekow Annan, reported that while giving his opening remarks on the resumption of the house from the Christmas break on Tuesday, 29 January 2019, the Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Mike Oquaye noted that the legislature will be venturing into a profit-generating business by constructing a hotel to make money for the house.

While reiterating the commitment of the house to pass the RTI bill, Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the work done on it so far cannot be attributed to pressure from civil society groups or well-meaning Ghanaians.

For his part, Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu urged the legislators to be punctual and diligent in the discharge of their duties.
