In a statement release, to respond to concerns raised by Minority on the withdrawal of the four military officers from the security detail of the Speaker, the Majority stated that,“The Speaker of Parliament, in terms of precedence, is the third gentleman of the land and one expects that when he is exiting the jurisdiction he must inform the presidency ahead of time since the Speaker is the person to act as the President in the absence of the President and the Vice President".
The Majority's statement, which was issued on Monday, January 17 2022 further stated that,“In all the many travels of the Speaker in 2021, he did not find it worthy to inform the Office of the President. What is the import of that"?
The statement further explained that, it is expected of the third gentleman of the land-Speaker Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, to inform the first gentleman, President Nana Addo, anytime he is exiting the jurisdiction and vice versa.
According to the Majority in Parliament, the regularization of the military’s role in the Speaker’s security , is not politically motivated as claimed by the opposition NDC members in Parliament; and that, “What is the proof? Or is it the case that they consider that since the Rt. Hon. Bagbin is NDC he is there to do the bidding of NDC and hence any critique of the Speaker or any action aimed at the Speaker is a critique of or action against the NDC, and therefore should be considered as being politically motivated? The people of Ghana know better and certainly can make the distinction between truth and sheer propaganda".
