Speaker of Parliament meets Otumfuo Osei Tutu II

Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon. Alban Kingsford Bagbin  yesterday called on the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations in the Ashanti region which starts today with a public lecture at the Great Hall of the KNUST.
The Speaker, accompanied by his spouse, the Second Deputy Speaker, MPs from the region, the Clerk to Parliament and two Deputy Clerks and some staff of the Parliamentary Service, expressed gratitude to Otumfuor for his wise counsel over the years and gave the assurance that, like the Asantehene, he will strive to remain transparent and accountable to the electorate and Ghanaians generally as he steers the affairs of the 8th Parliament to a successful end.
The Asantehene cautioned politicians about overly monetizing the electoral process, as this breeds corruption.
He urged MPs to remain in constant touch with their constituents in order to maintain a sense of conviviality among and between the governing and the governed classes.
