Speaker of Ghana's Parliament Alban Bagbin has caused a stir on social media for threatening to get recalcitrant Members of Parliament arrested for disrupting proceedings.

He told MPs on Wednesday afternoon that Parliament is not a place for joking but serious national business.

The Speaker had earlier expressed dissatisfaction with First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu, for dismissing a motion to constitute a bipartisan Committee to probe into government’s Covid-19 expenditure.

Speaking on the floor of the House on Wednesday, Mr Bagbin said that Mr Osei-Owusu’s decision to overrule his ruling over the matter, particularly when he had admitted the motion is unconstitutional, illegal and offensive.

He described recent happenings as the First Deputy Speaker’s penchant to overturn his rulings.

The breach, he said, makes him sick.
