Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram Samuel Nartey George has taken a swipe at a section of the media for being unfair to the Rt. Hon Speaker Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin.

According to him words of the Speaker have been twisted and misreported and the Speaker is not happy with it but is an issue for discussing at the appropriate time.

He made this remarks on Friday, November 26, 2021 midday when he pointed out to the media at a press conference that his colleagues on the Majority side of the House have not showed up in the chamber for debate on the budget to be concluded and a vote taken.

A member of the Parliamentary Press Corps inquired if the Speaker would not enter the chamber if the Minority side says they are in the chamber in their numbers. This he responded saying, “I hope you the media would not say the Speaker is bias when he walks in to do business”.

“We would take up issues with some of you, you have been very unfair to Mr. Speaker and coming to start business on the floor has nothing to do with the Speaker. The Speaker was not elected by Ghanaians to come and do business for them, it’s the members of parliament who have been elected, they should come and seat in the chamber”, he lamented.
