Majority Leader Followed An MP Who Has Not Spent A Year In Parliament To Walkout - Sam George

The debate over the debacle that took place in Parliament during the post budget discussion seems to be getting intense day in and day out. The unexpected chaos the erupted in the chamber has received massive public attention as Ghanaians share mixed reactions. Some have described the attitude of the NPP MPs as arrogant and contrary to parliamentary conditions.

As Parliament prepares to resume proceedings over the rejected budget today, the majority Caucus intend to mount intensive pressure on the speaker in an attempt to undo the decision that was taken in the previous week. As stated in the presser, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu would lead his team to get the budget passed.

Earlier today, November 30, 2021, Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram constituency, Honourable Sam Nartey George was interviewed alongside Director of Danquah Institute, Richard Ahiagbah. It was a heated discussion as Sam George vented his anger on the majority leader and blamed him for losing to control his members.

According to Sam George, the speaker's actions are justifiable and in consonance with whatever is being required as a speaker of Parliament. He explained that, it is disrespectful for any inexperienced lawmaker to issue unpleasant statements towards Alban Bagbin. He indicated that Alban Bagbin is one of the few matured lawmakers Ghana has had and needs to be respected as such.

Speaking further, he registered his disappointment over how the Majority Leader, Honourable Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu followed the orders of his team members to stage the walkout. He stated categorically that Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu failed to appreciate the fact that he was the leader of the caucus and could avert the problem.

He said, "The majority has lost its leadership. I was disappointed to see them engage in such unpleasant behaviour when leaders were there. The leadership stood up and followed a first timer who has spent just 11 months in the chamber. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu who has spent 24 years followed someone who has not spent a year in the Chamber."
