President Akufo-Addo is calling on the new Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin to corporate and work together with his government for the common interest of Ghana.
Speaking at his swearing-in ceremony, the President said even though Mr. Bagbin is a speaker nominated by the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), he is confident the two will work together in the interest of the Ghanaian.
“Together, you and I will be chartering new territory in the governance and politics of the 4th Republic, for this is the first time in the life of this Republic that a president from one party will be obliged, by the exigencies of the moment and the will of the people, to work, in all sincerity and co-operation, with a Speaker of Parliament from another party,”, he said.
President Akufo-Addo congratulated and assured Mr. Bagbin that he is determined to work with him to advance the peace, progress, and prosperity of the Ghanaian people.
