My leadership will resist any affront to the democracy of Ghana – Bagbin to Akufo-Addo, Bawumia

-

The Speaker of Parliament has affirmed his unwavering commitment to protect Ghana’s sovereignty and uphold its democratic principles in the face of potential government interference.

Alban Bagbin’s resolute stance follows a directive from President Akufo-Addo, dated March 18, 2024, instructing Parliament not to send the anti-gay bill for his approval.

In a sternly-worded Facebook post, Bagbin unequivocally stated, “The Parliament of Ghana under my leadership will resist any attempts to undermine our democracy.

“We will not allow the government to disregard the will of the people as expressed through their elected representatives.”

The Speaker underscored the importance of safeguarding Ghana’s cultural heritage and reclaiming elements lost to historical injustices.

“Our cultural values have suffered greatly due to colonialism and the slave trade. It is our duty as the current generation to protect what remains and even restore what has been lost,” Bagbin emphasized.

He urged President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to refrain from trivializing the democratic process.

“I urge the government, led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, to avoid actions that undermine our democratic traditions,” Bagbin cautioned.

The Speaker concluded by expressing gratitude to Ghanaians for their steadfast commitment to upholding truth and democracy.

Read his post below;

The Parliament of Ghana under my leadership will resist any affront on the democracy of Ghana. We will not allow a government to undermine the sovereign will of the people expressed through their representatives.

Particularly that the values of our people are concerned, we have lost so much of them to colonialism and slave trade that this generation has a divine mandate to protect the remnants of our cultural values and even restore the lost ones.

The culture and democracy of Ghana are supreme that I will do everything legally possible to safeguard them. I encourage the government led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to desist from actions and inactions that attempt to trivialize our democratic practice.

We at the Parliament House thank all Ghanaians for speaking so loud on this matter and speaking truth to the government.

God bless our homeland Ghana!
