Member of Parliament for Banda, Ahmed Ibrahim has faulted the Majority side for the fracas that occurred in Parliament last Monday night.
According to him when the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin was ready to get proceedings commenced on Monday, the Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu and his colleague Majority members were not prepared.
“There is a leadership failure on the part of the Majority Leader. As a Majority Leader you need to be in constant touch with Parliament, then the deputy speakers of Parliament need to be in constant touch with Parliament. Don’t forget the Speaker himself has just returned from sick leave. As a result of that when he sits he sometimes hands over to the deputy speakers which he did yesterday,” he told TV3.
“Yesterday, we were at the conclave and where was the Majority Leader? We in the Minority were here at 9AM and where was the Majority Leader? You have brought your budget to parliament, you have brought your financial document to Parliament but you left all these and went to Kumasi that you were going to do political party meeting, and as a result of that, you were unable to return on time for business to proceed. The speaker you are complaining against was waiting for you.”
