Member of Parliament for Nsuta-Kwaman Beposo Kwame Asafo-Adjei had called the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Aaron Oquaye to come to the aid of MPs.

According to the Nsuta-Kwaman Beposo legislator, strangers are taking over the elevators of Members of Parliament, competing with them over the elevator that has bold inscription “MPs Only” which leads to their offices.

He further noted that if there is an elevator which has inscription on it Judges only, he as a lawmaker would not make the attempt of taking and called on the speaker to protect MPs from “these strangers who compete with us”.

And gave a sad example of a Deputy Majority leader of the House who had to struggle with a stranger to the House over an elevator that leads to the MPs offices, and at the end the stranger took the elevator and left the Deputy leader behind.

Majority Leader who was presenting the business statement for next week when the issue was raised on the floor of the House, advice chairman of the committee on Agriculture and Cocoa Affairs, to avert his mind to the appropriate quarters to direct his question to, since the issue he was drawing the Houses attention to does not fall within the business statement.

“As much as I share with your plea, respectfully your issue has got nothing to do with the business statement”, he said.
