I’ve not granted Adwoa Safo permission to be absent from Parl-Speaker
Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin has dismissed claims that he granted an interview giving Dome-Kwabenya MP, Adwoa Safo, permission ro stay away from the House.
The Speaker on Thursday, February 24, 2022, disclosed that he had not granted any such interview anywhere, nor has he granted her permission.
He stressed the votes and proceedings in the House are so loud that the MP, Adwoa Safo, is absent without persimmon all those days she has stayed from the business of the House.
Mr. Bagbin added that the Speaker does not determine who is present or absent in the House.
”Is not the Speaker who determines who is present or absent. No, the votes and proceedings will capture those who are present, those absent and those who are absent with permission.”
He hinted he would properly address the issue of absentee MPs on Friday, February 25, 2022.
