Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has officially welcomed the new Minority Leadership to Parliament.
He welcomed them today, Tuesday, February 7, 2023 when the House resumed proceedings.
“The new leaders have all been in this house for a while and are very conversant with the culture and law of Parliament. I have confidence in their ability to meet the high expectations of our stakeholders. On behalf of the House, I warmly welcome them to the hot seat of the leadership of Parliament. Congratulations and I wish you well.”
He commended the outgoing leadership for their stellar performance and contributions to Ghana’s democracy in the House.
“The former members of the leadership of the Minority led by Haruna Iddrisu must be applauded too. Their record of performance is visible for all to see. And I hope the new leadership will continue to draw from their fountain of wisdom and wealth of experience. I know what it entails to lead a populous minority caucus in Parliament. All I can say to the former leadership is that the lord is your shepherd, and you shall now want. When one door closes another opens,” Mr. Bagbin added.
