The member of Parliament for North Tongu popularly known as Hon Okudzeto Ablakwa has revealed that the valiant but secret National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters in the New Patriotic Party (NPP) helped in the triumph of Alban Bagbin as Speaker of Parliament.
In spite of the fact that Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa didn’t reveal who the supposed partners are, he took to his twitter page to praise them.
He tweeted; “I greatly commend my resilient NDC colleagues and our quietly courageous allies in NPP who fought hard to make this historic moment possible,” Mr Ablakwa said in a tweet
This comes after Mr Bagbin was elected by Members of Parliament to lead the House as the Speaker.
Mr Bagbin was elected as the Speakers of Parliament with 138 votes as against 136 vote by Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye.
Mr Ablakwa has depicted Mr Bagbin’s triumph as an “epic triumph for Ghana’s most embellished assembly.”
He further stated that having a Speaker coming from a different political party (other than the party which the current president belongs to) will foster national development as “it can be expected that the era where the executive railroads and makes the legislature its appendage will be a relic of the past.
“Let us remember it is not about our personal egos – it is all about the supreme national interest.”
“The celebrations must now give way for the actual work to begin,” he added.
