Speaker of Parliament has denied categorically seeing any memo from the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu giving suggestions on how to fight corona virus, “I have not seen any letter from the Minority”, he lamented.

“Let me also say, we meet regularly every Monday before the House sits. This morning I met with the Majority Leader and Chief Whip, from the Minority side, we had madam Comfort Doyoe Cudjoe-Ghansah, the Minority Leader has not been here neither Saturday”.

Professor Oquaye noted that if the Minority Leader had any good thing he could even tell him, and he was willing to accept any suggestions from any quarters especially from the Minority Leader in the House.

He expressed shock about a memo from the Minority in the media of which he is not aware of and hoped the Minority Leader is not keeping it away from him as a media secret. “I am shock at the mention of it before two gentlemen mention it this morning. There must be something in it I do not know of and I do not see why such a document should be kept away from me”.

He made this remarks on Monday when he had a media briefing with journalists at his conference room on the fight against corona virus.

In addition, he noted that he has good reasons he want to limit himself to the parameters of Parliament which he has mandate until the end of this year as this is the peoples House and I would like the cooperation of the people, and further advocated for Ghanaians to do something which goes beyond politics.

“We cannot do politics with every inch of grass in our country, let us think Ghana to save our Republic, in my mind I would do what matters most for Ghana”.
