Rt Hon Alban Bagbin, speaker of the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic of Ghana has finally cleared the air that he never declared the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as the majority side of the house.
According to him, he referred to the NPP as the majority when Hon Andrews Asiamah who is the MP for Fomena decided to affiliate himself with the New Patriotic Party in the house.
Kojo Oppong Nkrumah the former Minister of Information took to the microblogging platform and broke the news with the caption;
‘The Rt Hon Speaker of the 8th Parliament has just declared the NPP as the Majority group in the House following receipt the letter from the Independent MP for Fomena. Government business will now begin.”
Well, during the proceedings in parliament, the Speaker was called upon to clarify the statement he made with regards to Andrew Asiamah (Fomena MP) , joining the NPP.
According to the Speaker of Parliament, he hasn’t declared the NPP as the majority in parliament and that time will eventually tell who the Majority is going to be since some constituency seats are being contested in parliament.
