Bong District #6 Rep. Briggs-Mensah Alleges ‘Dollarization’ in Deputy Speaker Race

Bong County Electoral District #6 Representative, Hon. Moimah Briggs-Mensah says the election of the Deputy Speaker of the 55th Legislature was marred by “dollarization”.
Rep. Briggs-Mensah expressing her disappointment said she was disappointed in her colleagues and was not getting involved in the race for the Deputy Speaker but vowed to be a voice in the 55th Legislature.
Today, January 15, 2024, members of the incoming 55th National Legislature went to the polls to elect the Speaker and Deputy Speaker to steer the affairs of that August body for the next six (6) years.
Speaking to journalists at her Capitol Building office, Rep. Briggs-Mensah said even though she supported Rep. J. Fonati Koffa in the race for the Speaker of the House, but she was betrayed by those who promised to nominate her but failed to do so.
Hon. Briggs-Mensah “even if you are not voting for me but you will refuse to nominate me; even someone from Bong County will be rushing to close the nomination”, the Bong lawmaker said in a frustrating tone.
Rep. Briggs-Mensah said she was not voting due to what she called “lack of morals of the two individuals” who where nominated to be elected for the Deputy Speaker post.
“I did not backoff from the process and I did not support anyone. What I can tell you is that the process has been dollarized, even people that committed themselves to us refused to nominate us. We will stand up tall because peopel like us, the Legislature will not want to see us in leadership because there are things we stand for and will never back down”, Hon. Briggs-Mensah said.
The Bong County lawmaker speaking in a furious tone said “those who robbed us, took the road funds money, will come and used money to dollarize the election process to get in leadership, we will resist it. I can tell you that nothing will go unpunished”, Hon. Briggs-Mensah intoned.
