The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has denied holding a meeting with the Parliamentary Service Board (PSB) while he was in Dubai for a medical review.

A statement signed by the Speaker’s Communications Manager, Peter Bamfo, said no meeting had been held at the instance or convenience of the Speaker of Parliament.

A publication by some media outlets had suggested that the PSB held its board meeting in Dubai on the orders of the Speaker to mark the close of the year.

It said members of the board had to be flown out of the country for the meeting to be held in Dubai at the convenience of the Speaker of Parliament.

It said the Board was chaired by the Speaker and had the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Leader of Government Business, Mr. Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu; the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, among others as members.

The Office of the Speaker of Parliament has however denied the claims.

It said though the PSB participated in an international workshop and team-building exercise by the Crown Agents in Dubai, the arrangement for the workshop preceded the Speaker of Parliament’s medical trip to Dubai.

“It was initially planned for April 2021 and was finally held in September 2021. It had to be postponed a couple of times due to time constraints and the availability of members of the PSB. Consequently, the workshop and the Speaker’s medical trip had nothing in common,” the statement clarified.

The office of the Speaker has thus asked Ghanaians to disregard reports suggesting his involvement in the meeting.
