I RESPECT MIKE OCQUAYE; HE’S BETTER CONSENSUS BUILDER THAN ALBAN BAGBIN – Muntaka

Even though Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mubarak used force (including physical assault) to guarantee that Speaker of Parliament Alban Bagbin defeated professor Aaron Mike Ocquaye, the NDC legislator now seems to regret the actions.

The Asawase MP claimed that because Bagbin is treating lawmakers poorly and “becoming a tyrant,” he has missed prof. Ocquaye.

Speaker Bagbin, in his view, has transformed the legislative chamber into a chief’s palace where he views himself as the fount of all knowledge and believes that whatever he says is binding.

“I am sorry to say this, but when you want to turn the Chamber of Parliament into a palace, then you become a tyrant. He is becoming a tyrant, Muntaka told JoyNews in an interview.

He explained that the speaker despises having his decisions questioned, which makes it difficult for lawmakers to freely express their opinions and concerns.

“You are not a chief, you are supposed to be a Speaker of Parliament and a Speaker listens to both sides patiently even where there is a disagreement and that is the essence of democracy to sometimes even agree to disagree but where you personalised it as if a disagreement is a disrespect to you, then I am sorry you are becoming a bad Speaker,” he added.
