Speaker of Parliament unhappy with MPs lateness

Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho has expressed his displeasure at the increasing attitude and the rate at which MPs report to the House late.

According to the speaker, the lackadaisical attitude shown by some MPs, is affecting the business of the House.

This outburst by the Speaker follows concerns raised by some Minority MPs about the absence of the Attorney General Marrieta Brew Appiah-Oppong, in the House on Tuesday, February 2, when she was expected to lay the Witness Protection Bill 2016.

We are part of the problem. I have to wait to get a certain number of people, a reasonable number, before I enter the chamber,” he retorted.

Using himself as an example, the Speaker said he has always had to wait for members of the House to be present before he starts proceedings.

Let us resolve from today that 10 o’clock, we all come here, leave our offices, come here [for proceedings], start the work and finish on time so you can go back to your offices,”  he advised.
