The General Secretary of the largest opposition party, the NDC, has reported that members of the NPP on the Parliamentary Service Board are afraid of his nomination and presence on the Board. He clarified that those who are opposed to his nomination are all members of the NPP.
Mr. Asiedu Nketia also stated that his appointment by Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin is legal and does not violate any of Parliament’s rules. He said this morning on NEAT 100.9fm, a prominent Accra-based radio station.
Alban S.K. Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, has named Asiedu Nketia, the NDC’s General Secretary, to the Parliamentary Service Board (PSB).
The six-member Board includes Suame MP Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, Tamale South MP Haruna Iddrisu, former Majority leader Abraham Osei Adu, former MP for Wenchi West, Clerk to Parliament Johnson Asiedu Nketia, and the Speaker, who also serves as chairman.
Some members of the House, such as Hon Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, seemed to be against the Speaker’s decision, although others applauded him.
