In an interview on the Citi Breakfast Show on Citi FM, Vanderpuye expressed his frustration with the challenges faced by Members of Parliament (MPs) in the execution of their duties. He highlighted the lack of protection from political parties, leading to mounting pressure and a loss of interest over time. “I am leaving parliament because I am frustrated; the [political] parties really do not protect the people they have [in parliament]. “The attrition rate in parliament is too high, and as such, people do not get the sort of experience they require to advance the work of parliament," Vanderpuye remarked. Vanderpuye highlighted the importance of parliamentary experience, noting that Speaker Alban Bagbin's success is attributed to his lengthy experience as a Member of Parliament.
