In his closing remarks, the Speaker, Mr Edward Doe Adjaho, commended members for the commitment, tenacity and endurance they displayed in the discharge of their work in the House.

Mr Adjaho thanked members for their understanding and co-operation in resolving matters during the few tense moments which ensured that the business in the House proceeded smoothly.

He also extended his gratitude to ministers who responded promptly to answer questions and carry through government business in the House relating to their respective ministries, departments and agencies.

The Speaker commended all stakeholders for their support and efforts to make the meeting successful.

Mr Adjaho urged the special committee on the 2015 district assembly elections to try and complete its work during the recess.

The Majority Leader, Mr A.S.K. Bagbin, commended members, especially the leadership, for the manner in which it resolved its differences for compromises and consensus to prevail in the deliberations of vital issues to enhance democracy and development of the country.

The Minority Leader, Mr Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu,stressed the need for a brainstorming to find pragmatic measures to overcome the crisis facing the country.

Before rising, the First Deputy Speaker, Mr Ebo Barton Odro, had asked the Minister for Transport to furnish the House with the breakdown of the total cost for the rehabilitation of the Kumasi Airport that was pegged at US$209 million.

The order followed an urgent question by Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the member for Manhyia South.

The House is expected to reconvene for the second meeting in May.

Whilst on recess, the Appointments Committee is expected to consider the President’s nominees for new ministerial positions on Thursday, April 9 and Friday, April 10.
