Speaker of the 8th Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin has disclosed that he had a hard time sleeping prior to the elections of the Speaker Position in Parliament.
According to him, when he took the decision of not contesting as an MP again, he had established an Institute of Parliamentary Affairs Africa, so he was transiting into that to support the democracy group when it dawned on him that he could become the Speaker of the 8th Parliament.
“I couldn’t sleep, but some spirit descended on me that I was going to win. That was why that day I promised you that we will win this battle,” Alban Bagbin said to former President John Dramani Mahama whilst speaking at a symposium organised by the NDC in memory of the late former President of Ghana, Jerry John Rawlings.
Bagbin said, “the God who started it all, will accomplish it”.
