The Minority Caucus in Parliament has indicated that they will take on the government of Ghana should anything happens to the Speaker of Parliament or should his security be compromised.
The Minority Caucus made this warning following the alleged withdrawal of some four soldiers who were attached to the Speaker of Parliament for security reasons by the Ghana Armed Forces GAF.
However, the Minority Caucus are therefore of the belief that the withdrawal of the four soldiers from the Speakers Officer is due to political reasons or it is politically motivated.
Furthermore, the Minority is, therefore, very disappointed to the matter further contending that the decision is however very regrettable and ought not to have been taken.
On that note, the Minority is for that matter calling for the withdrawal letter to be withdrawn again to reinstate the four soldiers back to Alban Bagbin office.
“The minority shall hold the government of President Akufo Addo responsible should the security of Rt. Hon Alban Bagbin, the speaker of Parliament be compromised in any way….We further call for the immediate withdrawal of the letter with ref no: GH/ 1002/ 01/ COS written on behalf of the Armed Forces by the Chief of Staff and purporting to withdraw the military personnel attached to Mr Speaker’s office”, they indicated.
A letter emanating from the Chief of Staff from the Ghana Armed Forces GAF, NP Andoh to the Speaker of Parliament indicated that the four soldiers who were attached to his office were done without any proper procedure and for that matter they should be withdrawn.
Therefore, the officers who according to the Chief of Staff of the Ghana Armed Forces GAF includes; WO1 Jafaru Bunwura, WOII Apugiba Awine David, S/Sgt Agbley Prosper and Sgt. Bonney.
Meanwhile, Prince is noted to have been serving the Alban Bagin office since January 2021 on his assumption into office.
