Former Deputy Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, Samson Ahi after walking out of the floor of Parliament on Tuesday in an interview with said the New Patriotic Party government brought in Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye as Speaker just to collapse the House.

The Minority walked out of Parliament on Tuesday over the Speaker’s decision to forward a motion to withdraw the 2015 AMERI deal to the Energy Committee.

“If he does not respect himself nobody will respect him, our leader was on his feet talking he deliberately ignored our leader, he is not prepared to listen to us”.

“Ghanaians if Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye is prepared to collapse the House, we will not allow him he never brought any one to this House. If he is not prepared to respect himself nobody will respect him”, he lamented.

What he has done he has set a very wrong precedent, every decision taken by the Speaker he is setting a precedent going forward those precedent can come back and hunt the NPP, he said.

Mr Ahi noted that, he (the Speaker) is setting a very dangerous precedent we should remember that when you are elected as a Speaker your major responsibility is to the state and you have to contribute to the democratization of this Nation.

“What he is doing, he is rather derailing this Country, moving it back as far as this Country is concerned”. “He has not done it once he has done it repeatedly”, he stated.
