His message comes after Rt. Hon. Bagbin was elected as the new Speaker of Parliament for the 8th Parliament of Ghana’s 4th Republic.

Sharing a photo of the Speaker of Parliament, the former President wrote;

Rt. Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin on your election as the Speaker of the 8th Parliament of the 4th Republic.
The events of last night stretching into the morning of 7th January have been both a great occasion for Ghana’s democracy and at the same time a day of infamy, which will go as a low point in our democratic practice.
The election of Speaker Bagbin affirms what a great democracy we can build for ourselves and how dialogue and consensus building can make us even stronger as a nation.
The attempt to snatch ballot papers by the MP-elect for Tema West and the invasion of the Chamber by armed personnel are images one had never expected to see in our 4th Republican Parliament. The recent use of the in civil democratic processes has become a major worry and gives the impression that this administration is continually seeking to resurrect the exorcised ghosts of our past. Parliament must conduct an investigation into the two incidents and exact appropriate sanctions.
to the leadership of the NDC Caucus and the Caucus members for your dedication and commitment.”
