The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin, has vehemently refuted claims made by former Special Prosecutor Martin Amidu regarding a clandestine meeting with President Akufo-Addo in Dubai in 2021 prior to the 2022 budget rejection.

Bagbin’s office issued a statement denying any such meeting, clarifying that the Speaker has not engaged with the President outside of Ghana, branding the allegations as false, baseless, and lacking foundation.

The statement urged the public to disregard these claims, labeling them as part of an orchestrated effort to smear the Speaker’s reputation.

Bagbin’s office demanded a retraction and apology from Amidu, warning of further actions if not complied with.

It emphasized that the Speaker remains committed to his parliamentary duties despite unwarranted attacks like Amidu’s, stressing the importance of respecting parliamentary decisions as expressions of citizens’ voices through their elected representatives.
