I did not Grant Adjoa Sarfo Permission- Speaker Bagbin

The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Bagbin has denied media reports attributed to him that he has said he granted permission to the embattled Member of Parliament (MP) for Dome-Kwabenya, Sarah Adjoa Sarfo to be absent from Parliament. 

The Rt. Hon. Speaker addressing the House on Thursday 24th February, unequivocally stated that he has never said anywhere to any media house or journalist that he has granted the Dome-Kwabenya MP permission. According to the speaker, it is the votes and proceedings of the House that determine which MP is absent with or without permission. He, went ahead to add that the votes and proceedings as captured show that the former Deputy Majority leader has been absent from parliament without permission.

The Rt. Hon. Speaker further indicated that he will address members of the house on the issues of absenteeism in the coming days for everyone to be clear on the matter. 

This comes on the back of public discussion about the absence of Hon. Adjoa Sarfo for over fifteen (15) Parliamentary sitting days without permission. An act that could trigger her seat to be declared vacant according to the constitution.
