It has emerged that the NPP Members of Parliament were tricked into rushing to Parliament at the ungodly hour by their colleagues on the other side.
Detailing how it was done, the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George says the presence of two NDC members in Parliament around 8:30 pm yesterday deceived the NPP into taking that singular decision.
In a Facebook post, Sam George has revealed that after Atta Akyea ran into him and Muntaka Mubarak at the house, they told him they were there ahead of the following day’s business an announcement that forced the NPP to act swiftly but wrongly.

See this 8th Parliament is going to be bae. Trust me. Let me tell you a true story.
Last night at about 8:30pm, myself and my Chief Whip, Hon. Muntaka had to go back to Parliament to take care of a few things. Just as we were about to go up the escalator, we ran in Hon Atta Akyea who enquired what we were doing in Parliament at that time.
We replied that we had arrived for sitting the next day! You needed to see the shock on his face as he walked away. He apparently notified his side and made them rush to Parliament at 4am to sleep in the chamber.
Well, we were in bed getting our beauty sleep at that time as we had agreed to get to the Chamber at 10am. There was no need for a rush or anything. We had won the battle and the war. We had elected the Speaker we wanted. Even if they come to the Chamber at 2am everyday for the next 4 years, the NDC Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin is the Speaker of Parliament.
May God make your opponents have sleepless nights whilst you rest in 2021. May they chase their shadows whilst you watch in humour and may they sleep when the time for work is due. May God force your opponents to play nonsense. Amen.
