Speaker swears-in new member of parliament

Mr. Daniel Kwasi Ashiama, newly elected member of Parliament for Buem constituency in the Volta Region, was on Thursday sworn in by Mr. Edward Doe Adjaho, the Speaker of Parliament.

Mr. Ashiama, 43, contested the Buem by-election on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress following the death of Mr Henry Ford Kamel, the late Volta Regional Minister.

Dr. Benjamin Kunbuor, the Majority Leader, said the House was very exciting and he should expect to make friends from both majority and minority.

Mr. Dominc Nitiwul, Deputy Minority Speaker said the new member was stepping into the shoes of one who has been in good relations with members from both sides of the House and that the new member was expected to do same.

He congratulated Mr. Ashiama and said the House would work together with him for the development of the nation.
