#2022BUDGET - I'll Plead With You All To Accept The Request; Bagbin Pleads With MPs As They Break.

As I witnessed the Parliament proceedings on Facebook live, It was an interesting scene when Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin pleaded with MPs to go on a simple break. His request was nearly rejected.

Speaker of Parliament Right Honorable Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin declared a 30 minutes break for the members of Parliament. According to him, the short break will help them to "Stretch their bodies" because they have sat down since morning.

" Today we have a very crucial task at hand. The 2022 budget shall be determined by the House. I'll plead with you all to accept my request to break. We shall come back after taking 30 minutes to continue with the sitting " Alban Sumana Kingsford spoke politely to the MPs.

Then came a loud shout from the members of Parliament. " No !!!! we aren't going on break ". Perhaps some of them wanted the house to continue sitting without the break.

" Well, since you have decided to reject my humble plea, then I have decided to break the house for 30 minutes. we shall reconvene soon. I rise" Alban Bagbin reacted to the laughter of the House.

Perhaps, he wanted them to know that he controls the house. The house is yet to accept or reject the 2022 budget either into a working document or restructuring.

Let's see what happens after 30 minutes time.
