Sam Pyne who is the Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has made it emphatic that the NPP party will resist every attempt by the opposition NDC to frustrate the second term of President Akufo-Addo.
Sam Pyne, who, like several others suspect that the NDC could use their advantage of having Alban Bagbin as Speaker of Parliament to frustrate Akufo-Addo’s second term in office has warned the NPP will be having none of that.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament who is in the person of Alban Bagbin has assured that he’ll be neutral in the house, adding that he’s no speaker for either NPP or NDC.
“Hon Members, I intend to live by the Oath I swore on the occasion of my election to this office, to respect, obey and abide by the will of the House. I am fully committed to being fair and impartial. But I am also fully committed to being firm. Members must also in reciprocity, respect and abide by my rulings and instructions.
“When in disagreement, the Standing Orders of the House, has the answer. I will apply the authority of the House as symbolized by the Mace, to protect and defend the prerogatives, privileges and immunities of Parliament, members and staff as provided under the laws of the country”, Bagbin said.
