E-levy: NPP MPs Were Wasting My Time; Had to go and Rest



Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has said that the Majority in Parliament delayed when he was ready to preside over proceedings on the E-levy in Parliament.

He said he could not be held liable for the inability to deliberate on the E-levy.

“I can give you a copy of my closing remarks which when I was leaving I passed through my usher to give to them that it was after 10 in the night, and I had to go and take a rest because you delayed in sitting. I had to compel the house to sit after 2 and I presided , I said let us discuss E-levy, you said no, rather the other business. I kept on varying we did about 6 important items, approving other ;loans until I had to handover getting to 6:30 to the first deputy speaker.

“Now, they say I refused to preside, that is why some numbers were not in the House , I am not a Chief whip of any party , I am not entitled to bring members to the House , that is not my duty. I presided and applied the rules and I have applied them fairly according to my understanding, through literature, through experience,” he said while addressing a forum of former Parliamentarians held at his behest on Thursday, December 23.
