Deputy Leader of the opposition All People’s Congress (APC) Member of Parliament, Hon. Ibrahim Ben Kargbo has requested the Speaker of Parliament to do something about MPs who have made it a habit to come late to parliament sittings late.

It could be recalled that since the commencement of the Second Session of the Fifth Parliament, the Speaker has been constantly cautioning MPs to be in attendance and on time whenever the House is meeting. However, it would seem that law makers haven’t heeded to his advice.

In response to Hon. IB Kargbo’s request, the Speaker has threatened to sanction MPs who make it a habit to come late to parliament sittings.

In a snap interview with Hon. Alhaji Ibrahim Ben Kargbo, he stated that the business of the House of Parliament is a serious affair and that it is incumbent on all MPs to act accordingly. He added that late-coming can seriously affect parliamentary deliberations. He used the opportunity to urge his colleague MPs that make it a habit to come late to parliament to change this trend.
