Parliament would assist ECOWAS Chair to help Mali restore its democracy – Speaker Bagbin Assures Mali


Speaker of Parliament Rt. Hon Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin has assured Mali that Parliament would assist the current ECOWAS Chair, President Nana Akufo-Addo to restore the country back to democratic rule. The Speaker gave the assurance when the First Deputy Speaker of the Malian Transitional Government’s General Assembly, Assarid Imbarcaouane came to invite Ghana's Speaker to their first ordinary meeting on April 5, 2021.

Speaker Bagbin promised to honor the invitation to Mali with his staff and Leadership of Ghana's Parliament. He recounted the good relations that have existed between the two countries saying; "in my private legal practice I had Malians in my firm".

"Mali needs to return to its rightful position. As one of the leading democratic countries, I have visited war tone countries and I have been involved in peace and reconciliation; we have a hung parliament, but we have been working together peacefully in the interest of all Ghanaians".

Ghana's Speaker also pointed out to the First Deputy Speaker of Mail that, when two brothers fight, it is strangers who enjoy their inheritance; "Mali is rich and has a deposit of Gold and oil, but foreign countries are exploiting your oil".
