Presidential Staffer Newton Abeeku Offei has informed Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin through a Facebook post to resign and focus on his health. His words of advice came a few hours after the Speaker of Parliament signaled to go to Dubai for 30 days medical check-up.
This is the second time the Speaker is flying out over health issues.
“In any of these civilized countries, the Speaker of Parliament, the Rt Hon Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin would have resigned to focus on his health, for the smooth running of government business.
The role of Speaker of is extremely stressful and rapidity with which he’s been junketting Accra and Dubai for medical attention is further exacerbating his condition and stalling business in the House.” Newton Abeeku Offei advised Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin.
As to whether Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin will listen to the advice and act accordingly, we’re yet to know. For now, it’s unclear about the main health issue affecting the Speaker.
In all, we can only wish him a speedy recovery. Check out the post made by the Presidential Staffer Newton Abeeku Offei.
