“I do not want to believe that the workers or the advisors at the time were from CPP. So if they were all NPP at the time and now you have another Speaker, I am wondering if Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu was expecting [Speaker] Bagbin to appoint his opponents to advise him.”
This follows the Speaker’s appointment of some persons affiliated with the NDC to advisory roles in Parliament.
The most recent was Mr. Bagbin’s appointment of Asiedu Nketia, to serve on the Parliamentary Service Board.
Reacting to this, the Majority Leader expressed concern over the sheer number of NDC-affiliated persons being appointed by the Speaker.
However, Mr. Nketia said it was hypocritical to make such claims, especially when President Akufo-Addo failed to appoint a single member of the NDC on the Council of State.
