Prof. Mike Ocquaye will not be the Speaker of Parliament after his defeat to NDC’s Alban Bagbin at the inauguration of the 8th Parliament.
Even before his defeat, NDC’s General Secretary, Asiedu Nketia urged the MPs not to vote for him because he’s too old and weak to perform the duties of a Speaker.
According to Aseidu Nketia, Ghana does not want a Speaker of Parliament who needs to be carried from his car all time.
After Asiedu Nketiah’s proclamation, footage of Prof. Mike Ocquaye honouring an invite to a funeral has surfaced on the internet.
One’s critical analysis and assessment of the footage will see that Prof. Mike Ocquaye needed help before he could get out of his car.
The truth is, the old man was looking visibly weak when walking to his seat which goes a long way to confirm the earlier proclamation by highly opinionated Asiedu Nketia.
