Speaker of Parliament, Mr Alban S.K. Bagbin has appointed the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia to serve on the Parliamentary Service Board (PSB).
The PBS is chaired by the Speaker of Parliament, Mr Bagbin.
Other members of the board are the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Leader of Government Business in Parliament, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, the Minority Leader, Mr Haruna Iddrisu and Mr Abraham Osei Aidoo, who is a former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament and former Majority Leader.
The Speaker thanked the committee for its advice and assured that he would proceed to appoint the persons named as members of the PSB.
“But I want to note that the former Parliamentary Service Board had Honorable Hackman Owusu-Agyeman as a member of the board and Hackman Owusu Agyeman later became the Chairman of the Council of Elders of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
“That one was not intrusion into the governance of Parliament by a political party. What is good for the gander is also good for the goose. Honorable members the board will be constituted and we will start our work,” he said.
