The Speaker of Ghana’s Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has directed Members of Parliament (MPs) to reconvene on May 2, 2023, to consider an “urgent parliamentary business”. This comes after Parliament went on a break on March 31 for the Easter celebrations, but are expected to shorten their recess and return to Parliament on May 2, 2023.

“In exercise of the power conferred on the Speaker by order 42(3) of the Standing Orders of the Parliament of Ghana, I, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, Speaker of Parliament, do hereby direct that Parliament shall, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, be recalled from recess to sit on Tuesday, to consider an urgent parliamentary business,” the statement stated.

The specific details of the “urgent parliamentary business” have not been disclosed yet. Nonetheless, the MPs are expected to reconvene and attend to the pressing matter at hand.

In a nutshell, the recall of Parliament for an “urgent parliamentary business” has raised concerns and speculation from Ghanaians, who are eager to know the issue at hand. The recall may be related to the recently passed revenue measures, which industry players argue could lead to the collapse of businesses in the country.

As Ghana seeks to complete the $3 billion IMF deal and improve the revenue situation of the country, it is important that the government and Parliament work together to ensure that the interests of Ghanaians are not compromised. Ghanaians are looking to their leaders to prioritize their welfare and ensure that the “urgent parliamentary business” is one that will benefit the country as a whole.
