The Member of Parliament for Madina Constituency in the Greater Accra Region, Hon. Francis Xavier Sosu has sent words of encouragement to Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, over the recent withdrawal of his security details.
Borrowing the words of Abraham Lincoln, the Madina MP stated that “nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power.”
According to him, the Speaker has used his one year in office to demonstrate his commitment to Ghana’s democracy and desire to ensure pure and real separation of powers.
Lawyer Sosu further noted that Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin has used his first year in office to ensure that all organs of state are accountable to the people.
According to him, despite the intimidation tactics the Akufo-Addo-led NPP government has employed, the people of Ghana are solidly behind Speaker Bagbin to discharge his constitutionally guaranteed duties.
He also urged him not to be moved by the withdrawal of his security details because God remains his shield.
The Madina MP’s comments follows the withdrawal of the military detachment of the Speaker as reported earlier by InsiderGH.com.
