Absentee MPs: You must recuse yourself from the Privileges Committee – Joe Wise told

The First Deputy Speaker, Joseph Osei-Owusu, must not sit on the Privileges Committee to probe absentee Members of Parliament, the Minority has said.

According to the Member of Parliament for Builsa South Dr. Clement Apaak, Josewise had made comments which compromise his neutrality hence, must step aside.

In an interview on TV3, Dr. Apaak said “Should that appeal to get the motion rescinded fail then there will also be the need to challenge the neutrality of the First Deputy Speaker who is the Chair of the Privileges Committee.

“He had made statements which seem to suggest that he had taken the position as far as the Honorable Sarah Adwoa Safo is concerned.”
