The Speaker of Parliament under the 4th Republic and the 8th Parliament, Hon Alban Sumani Kingsford Bagbin has affirmed it straight in the face of the Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi of the NDC that, he is a speaker of Parliament and his service is to Ghana, the general public.
This came up when the incumbent President accepted some selected nominees of ministerial positions. The Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi asked why the speaker has accepted the nominees of the various ministerial positions although he knows they can’t work well.
But the Speaker reiterated that, “I am speaker for the nation and not to NDC, my party, I don’t take sides anywhere. I am only doing my service to the nation.” The speaker told the communications officer.
