Dear numbered ‘caesars’ seat yourselves sure – Ace Ankomah
Ace Ankomah sends message to elected leaders
Dear numbered ‘caesars’ seat yourselves sure
A private legal practitioner, Ace Kojo Anan Ankomah,
has taken a jibe at the elected leaders of the country
following a statement by Speaker of parliament, Alban Bagbin
about being in the “number 3” position in the nation’s governance.
During a heated debate in Parliament yesterday, March 24,
Mr Bagbin teasingly chided Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu when
he challenged him regarding a decision Mr Bagbin had taken.
He said: “Majority Leader your powers have not reached that.
The business of government is led by you in this house,
you don’t lead Parliament, you lead the business of the House,
you lead the Majority and you lead government business.
As to the role of the Speaker, you haven’t reached there yet.
When you get there you’ll give rules.”
The Speaker proceeded to remind the Majority Leader of
Parliament that his role as Speaker is superior to that of
Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, adding: “You have to be my friend,
not me being your friend. At least,
I have a position in Ghana, Number 3. What is your number?”
Reacting to this, the veteran lawyer in a Facebook post
on Wednesday, reminded them, and by extension,
all those in leadership positions in government that the
power they wield is only possible because of the
country’s “unnumbered” citizens.
