Mr. Hopeson Adorye has stated that Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin’s bad behavior was largely influenced by his trip to Dubai with $600,000 in cash.
In an interview with Wontumi TV, the NPP firebrand lambasted the Speaker of Parliament for spearheading the push to stymie government activity in Parliament alongside the minority in the house.
Alban Bagbin, who is the first non-member of the ruling party to be elected Speaker of Parliament, was challenged to leave a good legacy.
“You have an opportunity to make a good name,” Hopeson Adorye told Alban Bagbin. “Never in the history of this country have we had a ruling administration picking a Speaker of Parliament from a different party.”
He further cautioned Mr. Bagbin from deceiving himself and believing that obstructing government work in Parliament would satisfy former President John Mahama.
