Military personnel attached to Speaker’s office withdrawn
The security detail from the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) attached to the Office of the Speaker of Parliament, Alban S.K Bagbin have been withdrawn.
A letter from the Chief of Staff of GAF, NP Andoh to the Speaker noted that the four military officers were assigned ‘without proper procedure.’
Hence, their withdrawal.
“It is humbly requested that the personnel are withdrawn with effect from 14 January 2022 while efforts are made to regularize their attachment,” the letter stated.
The officers, WO1 Jafaru Bunwura, WOII Apugiba Awine David, S/Sgt Agbley Prosper and Sgt. Bonney Prince have been at post at the Speaker’s office since January 2021.
In the interim, it is unclear whether or not alternative arrangement will be made for the Speaker pending the regularisation of the security detail from the Ghana Armed Forces.
