I can remove Nana Addo from office but he can’t touch me, Alban Bagbin brags over having control over the president.

He claims that while the constitution allows Parliament to remove a president, it does not allow a president to dismiss the Speaker of Parliament.

Over the weekend, the speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin stated this during a post-budget forum held in Ho, Volta Region.

Parliament, he claims, authorizes budgets that favor the administration above the legislature and courts.

Despite having such powers, he stated that he will not use them.

He was heard saying

“This year, all the laws we have been passing are laws we passed to benefit the executive, even we forget about Parliament in the language we use, this is self-inflicted; it is not a deficiency in the constitution, it’s a deficiency in Parliament itself. We must correct it,”

“Let me reemphasized that the 8th Parliament is properly positioned not to allow itself to be bullied into playing second fiddle to the executive. Parliament can remove His Excellency the President; His Excellency cannot do that to Parliament. As Speaker, His Excellency cannot remove me, but I can through Parliament get him [the president] removed”.
