Withdrawal of Bagbin’s military guards shameful, politically motivated – Minority

A minority in parliament said the military`s highest command decision to withdraw soldiers providing security to Chair Alban Bagbin's office was politically motivated. He said he believed that the soldiers' affiliation with the Speaker's Office could be legalized without withdrawing them, provided that the allegations of non-compliance with legal proceedings were true. "The parliamentary minority is sad and strongly condemns the resignation of Chairman Hong Alban Bagbin, which came into effect on January 14, 2022 . "Minorities are convinced that the actions of the military's highest command in withdrawing the chair's security details are politically motivated.

The news was shocked when the Speaker's Office questioned the motivation behind the withdrawal of soldiers. The Department of Homeland Security also stated that despite the withdrawal, Alban Bagbin still has security protection and soldiers are being deployed to provide such services as needed. Parliamentary Secretary formally prepared a document to request staff and officially dispatched officers to be appointed to the Speaker's Office, which has been in that position since January 2021. Parliamentary minority is sad, Speaker of Parliament , effective January 14, 2022.

Curiously, the government cannot or cannot establish the process of hiring military personnel to celebrities such as the Speaker of Parliament. In fact, on January 21, 2021, the Parliamentary Secretary wrote to the Chief of Staff of the Army, who formally demanded the hiring of the military personnel in question. At this point, the Chief of Staff did not find any procedural violations related to the Chair's request. But does the same chief of staff's year, who granted the request on behalf of the military's High Command, now want the Ghanaians to believe he made the first mistake? minority also states that the appointment of military personnel to a spokesman office is by no means an isolated case.

For example, members of the government, other than the President and Vice President, who are under the Speaker of Parliament in constitutional positions and positions, have left soldiers in their offices at various times. From the above, the minority is politically motivated by the actions of the military's highest command in removing the chair's security details, and the legislature of the government that governs national affairs fairly and independently. Under these circumstances, if the security of Lieutenant Hong Alban Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, is never compromised, the minority will need to hold President Akufo-Addo government accountable.
