During the week of November 10, 2023, six ministers are expected to come before Parliament to respond to inquiries on, among other things, the excess water leakage from the Akosombo Dam and the brutalities committed against the Garu people. 

The Ministers of Energy, National Security, and Works and Housing are Mr Francis Asenso-Boakye, Mr Albert Kan Dapaah, and Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh. 

The remaining individuals are Mr. Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, Minister of Health, Mr. Samuel Abu Jinapor, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, and Mr. Kwasi Amoako-Attah, Minister of Roads and Highways. 

The Deputy Majority Leader and Effutu MP, Mr. Alexander Kwamina Afenyo-Markin, presented the Business Statement of the Housing for the week ending on Friday, November 10. He stated that the ministers would respond to 39 questions. 

He noted that on November 8, Dr. Opoku Prempeh will update the House on the Volta River Authority's (VRA) spills from the Kpong and Akosombo hydroelectricity projects, as well as the disastrous consequences for the people surrounding the Volta River Basin.  

On Thursday, November 9, Mr Dapaah will provide an update about the reported violence against civilians on October 9 by the Military in Garu, Tempane, and the surrounding areas in the Upper East Region. 

This comes after several young people in the neighbourhood are said to have attacked some National Security agents on October 24.  

The main topic of discussion during Mr. Agyemang-Manu's briefing on Thursday, November 9, would be the closing of the Out-Patients Department (OPD) for the Renal Unit at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital. 

Mr. Afenyo-Markin stated, "Mr. Speaker, honourable members have already filed about 747 Questions per the Draught Agenda for this Meeting." 

"Once more, honourable members have resumed filing new questions that represent the needs of their constituents after the lengthy break."   

When the Ministers of State were due to appear before the House to answer questions, he urged them to make every effort to do so. 

He urged House committees receiving referrals to speed up their work on them so they might be considered.
