Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin has revealed to Ghanaontheglobe.com in a recent interview with one of the media houses, Class fm that he is a Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament not just for National Democratic Congress or New Patriotic Party but a Speaker of parliament for Ghana.
“Because I say I belong or came from a party, does he [Sammy Gyamfi] think I’m at the beck and call of the party? Now, I don’t belong to any party. I’m Speaker of Ghana. I’m not a Speaker of NPP. I’m not a Speaker of NDC. I’m Speaker of Ghana. And I must hold the balance. So, decision-taking; no.
My duty is to ensure that there’s an even playing field and the decision is taken and I announce it. That is all, And, so, if you sit down and look at me and think that maybe you were my girlfriend before [and, therefore] I should give you an advantage over another who I’ve never met, please, then don’t come to me; you won’t get it. Let’s finish; after work, we can do that business together. Not when I’m working. That’s my nature; that’s how I’ve been up to this time and, so, it’s unfortunate that these things are happening”, Alban Bagbin said.
This comes after Sammy Gyamfi recently accused him of betrayal, he said “We have a Speaker who rode on the back of the NDC into office to pursue his own parochial agenda and nothing more. You trust them at your own peril.”
