Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye has stressed that he won’t hesitate to reprimand Minority Members of Parliament when they fail to adhere to the rules of the House.

According to him, he will be professional in his dealings with the Minority and won’t back down on being tough on them.

The Speaker’s comment follows a walkout by the Minority MPs during the consideration stage of the Corporate Insolvency Bill.

The Minority had argued that the House lacked the needed quorom to take decisions and requested the Speaker to disallow the approval of the amendments to the Bill.

But the Speaker brushed aside that request by the opposition MPs prompting  them to stage a walkout.

In doing that, Minority Chief whip, Alhaji Muntaka Mubarak accused the Speaker of lawlessness and acting shamefully after refusing to halt proceedings.

Commenting on the incident at a media briefing, Prof. Mike Oquaye said “I have a very good relationship which is a professional relationship. All those who want to be professional are professional. But I don’t hesitate to throw the book at you when it is necessary and that means we’ll go by the rules. Let us major on the majors. So those people who like to major on minors, personally I like to ignore them because that is the way to build the nation.”
