Addressing the Parliament on Monday, December 4, 2023, the former Minority Leader expressed concerns about the financial implications of such a sizable delegation on the state's resources.

"Mr. Speaker, with this economic distress, how can Ghana lead a delegation of 618 persons? Are we shouldering the economic gain and hardship of the Ghanaian? And Mr. Speaker, I see a delegation of the President here at COP28… I am demanding that a committee looks at this," he emphasized.
