The Member of Parliament for Ho West, Emmanuel Kwesi Bedzrah led a delegation from the family of the late Francis Agbotse, former Member of Parliament of Ho West Constituency to officially invite the Speaker Rt. Hon Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin to his funeral on Friday, April 16, 2021 in the Volta Region.

According to him, the late MP was the class mate of the Speaker and his colleague in the second, third and fourth Parliament of the fourth Republic of Ghana.

Mr. Bedzrah further noted that his predecessor was a member of the ECOWAS Parliament but unfortunately passed on the January 1, this year. And announced that he has been appointed to the ECOWAS Parliament with the re-composition of Ghana’s members to the fifth Legislature.

His colleague Kofi Attoh who is a special aid to the Speaker, noted that the late MP brought electrification to most part of the Ho West Constituency, and recounted how he was good to his MPs and related well with his people.

Again, he was one of the MPs who championed the use of common fund to give scholarship to students to the extent that at a point in time, he was invited to face auditors because it was the practice then to buy cement for projects.

“What is more than building the human capacity of a people and everybody is doing that now. He was so committed to the NDC, despite his ill health he went out to vote. Again, he made a powerful statement to the extent that we got a judiciary committee”, he noted.
