Parliament would assist ECOWAS Chair to help Mali restore its democracy – Speaker Assures Mali

Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has assured the people of the Republic of Mali that Parliament would assist the current ECOWAS Chair, President Nana Akufo-Addo to restore the country back to democratic rule.

The Speaker gave the assurance on Friday, March 26, 2021, when the First Deputy Speaker of the Malian Transitional Government’s General Assembly, Assarid Imbarcaouane came to invite Ghana’s Speaker to their first ordinary meeting on April 5, 2021.

Mr. Bagbin promised to honor the invitation to Mail with his staff and Leadership of Ghana’s Parliament.

He recounted the good relations that have existed between the two countries saying; “in my private legal practice I had Malians in my firm”.

“Mali needs to return to its rightful position. As one of the leading democratic countries, I have visited war tone countries and I have been involved in peace and reconciliation; we have a hung parliament, but we have been working together peacefully in the interest of all Ghanaians”.

Ghana’s Speaker also pointed out to the First Deputy Speaker of Mail that, when two brothers fight, it is strangers who enjoy their inheritance; “Mali is rich and has a deposit of Gold and oil, but foreign countries are exploiting your oil”.

Again, we would share our experience with Mali and democracy is not a product of any particular country, each country builds on its own democracy.

“Ghana can only complement the efforts of Mali but the final decision would depend on you”. And added that it is because of the importance Ghana attaches to Mali that leadership of the House was at his conference room to support him.
