It is a plot to put the safety of the Speaker in harm: Bagbin responds to military withdrawal.

The office of the Speaker of Parliament has responded to the withdrawal of the military officers posted to assist the protection of the Speaker. Honourable Bagbin has discribed that action by the Ghana Armed Forces as an act of bad precedent.

In a statement issued by the office of the Speaker, it reads, "In a country that takes pride in its democratic institutions and processes, the decision to reduce the number of security personnel assigned to the Speaker detracts from the political gains that Ghana has made, and is a bad precedent".

The statement also revealed that the move to withdraw the military officers from their post at the office of the Speaker of Parliament will widen the gab between between the legislature and the other arms of government. The statement also reads that this action is a possible plot to place the safety of the Speaker in harm's way.

What are your thoughts on the Speaker's response to the withdrawal of the military officers from their post at the office of the Speaker of Parliament.
