The speaker of Parliament, Right Honorable Alban Bagbin is calling on government for financial support.
Speaking to MPs in parliament this morning, Alban Bagbin revealed that parliament is facing some level of financial difficulties. He explained his point by saying that various machines such as printers have all been damaged beyond repairs. He added that it will be difficult for Parliament to function well without financial support.
"The parliamentary service board is still working on those reports. We have not gotten the necessary financial support to buy new ones. Even though the board has given approval, we are still sourcing funding and it is not there."
"What many of you don't know is that even as at this time, we don't have any releases from the ministry of finance for us to run parliament" he said.

This comes after Muntaka complained that parliament has failed to compile all official reports for today's sitting. Alban Bagbin replied him by saying that parliament needs support from government so that all spoilt machines could be repaired or replaced.
