Why Everyone wants to go to Parliament? – Asantehene questions Speaker

Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Concerns have been raised by Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Asantehene, over the great desire of many people to hold the office of Member of Parliament.

The Asantehene questioned Alban S.K. Bagbin, the Speaker of Parliament, on Sunday, June 30, 2024, in the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi over the reasons for her desire to enter Parliament.

He brought up the extraordinary lengths to which some individuals are ready to go, including physical assault and insults.

Why does everyone wish to see the parliament building? Is it really necessary for people to beat and insult others in order to enter Parliament? It is imperative that you take note of this, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II declared.

He drew attention to the irrational claims made by a few candidates for parliament, stressing that members of parliament lack the resources to carry out these pledges.

“Why do you as an MP make promises to fix roads and other things that you know you can’t deliver when you don’t even have a budget?”

As part of a national tour honouring the Ashanti Region, Bagbin is now on a three-day official visit.
