You can’t undermine our democracy – Bagbin tells Akufo-Addo

Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin

Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has declared firmly that under his leadership, Parliament will resist any attempts to hurt Ghana’s democracy. He said not even the government would be allowed to “undermine” Ghanaians’ sovereign will. Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin made the remarks in a post on social media where he posted pictures of headlines from various media houses about his decision to halt the vetting and approval process for ministers-designate.

“The Parliament of Ghana under my leadership will resist any affront on the democracy of Ghana. We will not allow a government to undermine the sovereign will of the people expressed through their representatives.

“Particularly that the values of our people are concerned, we have lost so much of them to colonialism and slave trade that this generation has a divine mandate to protect the remnants of our cultural values and even restore the lost ones,” he noted.

According to the former Nadowli-Kaleo lawmaker, “The culture and democracy of Ghana are supreme that I will do everything legally possible to safeguard them. I encourage the government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to desist from actions and inactions that attempt to trivialize our democratic practice.”

Meanwhile, Alban Bagbin thanked Ghanaians who vehemently criticized the President’s letter to Parliament. He said the many Ghanaians who spoke on the issue spoke the “truth”.

“We at the Parliament House thank all Ghanaians for speaking so loud on this matter and speaking truth to the government.

“God bless our homeland Ghana!”
