Majority Leader calls on MPs to beef up personal security


The Majority Leader in Parliament, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, has called on Members of Parliament to beef up their personal security from now till the swearing-in of the new Parliament.

The reason for this call is as a result of the various threats and deaths pushed on the lives of the law makers. He therefore advised them to make arrangement from the Security outfit of the Noble House for their personal safety.

“Though there are rumours and whispers inundating our space, I don’t believe in rumours but you will never know what somebody is thinking; people these days are becoming very devilish.”

The Majority Leader gave the advice during the presentation of the Business Statement for the seventh week ending Tuesday, December 22, 2020.

Mr Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu said the House was scheduled to sit on Monday, December 21, 2020. Sittings of the House may be extended beyond 2:00 p.m. as stipulated in Order 40(2). This is to enable the completion of scheduled business for each day of the week under consideration.

He said the House was expected to break for the Christmas holidays on Tuesday, December 22, 2020 and reconvene on Monday, January 4, 2021 to wind up business of the Seventh Parliament.
