Bagbin: I’ve not appointed Kofi Attor as ‘acting Speaker’

A statement issued by the Office of the Speaker on Monday (14 March) said Attor, who works at Bagbin's office as special advisor was only assigned to receive a message on behalf of the Speaker

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin has denied report suggesting he has appointed a personnel in his office Kofi Attor as an ‘acting Speaker’ in his absence.

A statement issued by the Office of the Speaker on Monday (14 March) said Attor, who works at Bagbin’s office as special advisor was only assigned to receive a message on behalf of the Speaker.

The statement was in reaction to a publication in the Daily Guide headlined “Bagbin appoints NDC man as Deputy Speaker”.

“The said publication is just one of the mischievous attempts to court publication disaffection and ridicule for the Speaker and bring him into disrepute. The public is advised to ignore the mischief  that was intended.

“In the instance under reference, Hon Kofi Attor was assigned to receive a message intended for the Speaker, from a delegation of  Médecins Sans Frontières , an international medical humanitarian organisation.

“That assignment cannot make him the acting Speaker in Parliament. It must be pointed out that the delegation was in Parliament to primarily to meet with the leadership and Health Committee of Parliament and they did,” the statement said.

Below is the full statement
