Former Acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh has charged the Majority NPP in Parliament not to understand lost on the appointment of the new Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin.

Eventually, Hon. Bagbin was chosen and named the Speaker of Parliament however not without resistance as Tema West MP, Carlos Ahenkorah showed his aversion by endeavoring to snatch and flee with the uncounted ballot papers

It baffles me that they feel lost out or they lost something. The true analysis of the situation there is if some NPP members on the side of Parliament hadn’t voted, Bagbin could never have been Speaker. They must claim him. NPP must claim Bagbin”
Fortunately, he is a person we know to be fair-minded. He is not rigid rabid person like some of the NDC people to say he will always side with the NDC,” he added
