Speaker asks Privileges Committee to present ‘Kennedy Agyepong Report’

The Speaker of Parliament, Professor Mike Ocquaye, has asked the Privileges Committee to present the first report on Mr Kennedy Agyapong to Parliament, on Wednesday, February 13, regarding some derogatory comments he made about the House.

Mr Kennedy Agyapong, Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, was hauled before the Privileges Committee over his comments believed to have offended Parliament and Mr Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu, the Majority Leader.

Mr Joseph Osei Owusu, the Chairman of the Committee, told the House that the first report on Mr Agyapong was ready but another matter had arisen that had also been referred to the Committee.

He said the Committee, therefore, decided to finish its work on the second matter before presenting the reports.

However, the Speaker, in his ruling, asked the Committee to present the report on the first case, which was filed by Alhaji Mohammed Mubarak Muntaka, the Minority Chief Whip, to Parliament by Wednesday, February 13, 2019.
