Nana Yaw Agyenim-Boateng, PhD, an activist of the ruling party, New Patriotic Party {NPP}  in the Central Region, has opined that the decision by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin,  to act on a petition submitted by the owners of the defunct UT and Unibank is a slap in the face of our judiciary system.
According to Dr Agyenim-Boateng, the 1992 constitution is based on a quasi-executive presidential system of government. Executive power is vested in the President, legislative power in Parliament and judiciary power in the judiciary. By the functions of various ARMS of government in Ghana, Parliament enacts laws and the judiciary interprets the laws.
The speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin is setting a bad precedence by accepting a petition to probe the collapse of UT and Unibank. He lamented in exclusive interview with MyGhanaMedia.com.
Dr Agyenim-Boateng further revealed that though everyone has the right to petition Parliament on issues. Our laws in Parliament imply that when there is an issue before court and a related issue in Parliament raised by an M.P on the floor in such a way that will interfere with the court case.
The court has not exhausted the processes and the case are being heard by the court of competent jurisdiction. I don’t fathom why the speaker of Parliament wants a Parliamentary committee to be to be formed to investigate the issues of these banks, which are before the court, Dr Agyenim-Boateng quizzed.
He also added that the speaker of Parliament is pitching the legislature against the judiciary with these actions. Because should the outcome of the committee contradict the court ruling, matters will be complicated.
What prevents owners of collapse banks to seek redress at the Appeal Court or Supreme Court if they are not satisfied with the final determination of the case or is Parliament now an Appeal Court or Supreme Court, he fumed.
Long live Ghana
Long live Assin South
Long live N.P.P
From the corridors of Assin Bosomadwe.
