The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Bagbin before making a statement on an earlier ruling by the first Deputy Speaker Hon. Joseph Osei-Owusu, on Wednesday 23 February, had cause to scold Members of Parliament for misconduct.
The Speaker who was furious for the noise and behavior of Members of Parliament in The House retorted, “when the speaker is talking, members are also talking.” He further threatened to order the Marshals of Parliament to walk out members who continue with such behavior on the floor of Parliament. The irritated Rt. Hon. Speaker expressed his repulsion for the persistent disorder on the floor of the House and exclaimed that “You make me sick!”
However, some members who appeared unhappy grumbled but The Speaker quickly clapped back by saying “will you shut up!?
The Speaker however went ahead with proceedings of the day after making his statement about an earlier ruling that rejected a private members motion seeking a bipartisan inquiry of Covid-19 expenditure by the government.
