The General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has taken a swipe at the immediate-past Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Ocquaye.
Johnson Asiedu Nketia questioned the fitness and health of Prof. Oquaye after he was proposed for the Speakership of the 8th Parliament.
Prof. Oquaye was the Speaker of the 7th Parliament and was nominated by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to retain his position.
However, he was defeated following a vote which saw National Democratic Congress (NDC) nominee Alban Bagbin elected as the Speaker of the 8th Parliament.
Before Parliament decided, though, Asiedu Nketia took a swipe at Prof. Oquaye’s decision to stand for the Speakership despite his physical condition.
“We don’t need a speaker who you’ve to carry into his car and out of his car. Let’s be serious. We don’t need a speaker who always needs an ambulance,” the NDC General Secretary told Joy News ahead of the elections in Parliament.
Meanwhile, Ghana’s legislators have unanimously selected Joseph Osei Owusu (Joe Wise) and Andrews Amoako Asiamah to serve as First and Second Deputy Speakers, respectively, of the 8th Parliament.
