Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, Alban Bagbin has warned and urged Members of Parliament to be of good behaviour or see his crazy side.
According to him, the parliament is a serious institution that must never be seen to be a playground.
Addressing some stubborn MPs who in the course of the President’s State of the Nation Address and thereafter resorted to consistent interruption of submissions and heckling of one another, the Speaker said he is not going to tolerate it anymore.
“Don’t turn Parliament into a playground. I’m not going to tolerate that at all,” he warned on Wednesday, March 10, 2021, during the debate of the State of the Nation Address.
Ghanaians, yesterday, were unhappy with how MPs in Ghana’s parliament conducted themselves when the President was delivering the SONA. For many, these MPs were behaving just like some stubborn SHS students and showed no discipline.
From the singing of politically motivated songs to the casting of aspersions and throwing about of horrendous jargons, the Speaker believes the time for Parliament to move away from mediocrity and baseless useless banters is NOW!
