Speaker asks non-Members of Parliament to leave the chamber for security briefing

Professor Aaron Michael Oquaye on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 asked non-Members of Parliament, the media and the public to leave the chamber, when the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery was ready to start his briefing.   

According to him in the contest of privilege, if the sector Minister on Interior and National Security want to brief the House it should be so.  

“I should not go and bring spectators before the House to be briefed when he has requested so, please this is my order at this stage, non-members of the House should leave and MPs are going to be briefed by the Minister and listen to him”.

This happened in the wake of the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu requesting that non-members of the House be part of the briefing.
