Asiedu Nketia, Osei Kyei Mensah And Others Storm Upper West For Thanksgiving Service Of Alban Bagbin

One of the eventful political days on the calendar of 2021 was the election of a new speaker for the 8th Parliament. It can be recalled that Parliament had been evenly split into 2 with both the New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress getting 137 MPs. It was only the alignment of the MP for Fomena that made a thin difference and added a plus 1 to the NPP.

The election of the speaker was even trickier and thorny. Both parties fielded a candidate and this put up a straight fight between Mike Oquaye, the former Speaker and Alban Bagbin a former NDC Majority leader. The night will be remembered for the debates, tussles, ballot snatching, fight for seats and eventual win for Alban Bagbin.

This is April and the Speaker Alban Bagbin has visited his home region. The gathering was held in Sombo. A thanksgiving service was held in his honor as he was flanked by other Parliamentarians to thank God for his election. Check out the photos. 

How has Alban Bagbin’s tenure been so far?
