Bagbin Features On Front Pages Of Major Newspapers But For The Bad Reason

A section of newspaper publications has featured the Speaker of Parliament Rt Hon. Alban S.K Bagbin on their front pages. The Daily Guide, Day Break, the New Crusading Guide, the Finder, the Daily Stateman, and the Inquisitor have all presented interesting headlines to the backlash the Majority in Parliament gave the Speaker and the Minority for insinuating the withdrawal of the Military attaches is meant to gag him.

With such publicity on this controversial yet political sensitive matter, the Speaker is being ‘hung’ for rebuke by the public. The revelation by the Majority that Rt Hon. Bagbin was overly ‘pampered’ with having every request for additional security granted had caused a stir.

Many have wondered why certain protocols could be breached or overstepped only to please the Speaker when no precedent had ever been set by any of his predecessors. Undoubtedly, the 9-points argument as raised by the Majority convincedly shutters the innuendos that were fired by the Minority and the Speaker himself.

The media space will surely chance on this content and analyse every newspaper headline, and a section of which offered the Minority and Majority a chance to clarify or respond to claims advanced on this matter. Strangely after the press conference by the Majority, the Office of the Speaker had been unexpectedly silenced.

This is a terrible start for the new year, especially when sitting had just resumed. The potency of this political disagreement and exposé disrupting the relationship between the Speaker and the Majority Caucus cannot be discounted.

Though, the Majority was very much decent in their argument of defending the Military Command’s directive of withdrawing the military attachment to the Speaker’s office, the impression the Speaker had coupled with his inalienable service to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) could trigger some conflict in he being impartial in parliamentary deliberations.

The records have been set, and all parties to this controversial matter need to reflect on their actions to ensure the smooth running of parliamentary work. Ghana first!
