Tamale Central MP, Murtala Mohammed has questioned the Majority Leader’s grasp of the law, in relation to that of the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.
According to the NDC lawmaker, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu’s limited appreciation of legal matters cannot be compared to the experienced Bagbin’s understanding of the law.
Establishing the distinction between the two, the MP stated that at the time when Bagbin was practicing law, the Majority Leader was trading in spare parts.
“Kyei Mensah Bonsu has a penchant for attacking the Speaker. And he does that with alacrity. We want to serve notice to him, that we will not allow him to disrespect the Right Honourable Speaker.
“And he said that Bagbin doesn’t understand the law. Honourable Bagbin has been in practice as a lawyer for several years. At a time when was practising, you Kyei were selling spare parts at Magazine. That’s what you were doing”, the MP said in an interview on Citi FM on Wednesday.
The Tamale Central MP made these remarks while expressing his reservations about the Majority Leader’s reaction to a ruling by the Speaker on the floor of the House on Wednesday.
