The Speaker of Parliament, Mr Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has directed the Minister of Health, Mr Kweku Agyemang- Manu to appear before Parliament within two hours or face sanctions from the house.
The call was to enable the Minister answer questions on the state of health facilities in Sefwi Akontombra in the Western North Region.
After a question from Member of Parliament for Sefwi Akontombra Alex Djornobuah Tetteh was advertised, the Minister of Health was nowhere on the floor on Monday, March 29 to answer.
But Speaker Bagbin was incensed by the absence of Mr Agyemang-Manu, who is also MP for Dormaa Central.
“I am not going to take that,” he warned.
“I direct that the Minister appears before Parliament within two hours to answer the question. Failing to do so, the necessary consequences will apply.”
