The Speaker, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has called for a sober reflection and recollection on the life and legacies of Members of Parliament who served the House with distinction.

He said the work of Parliament can be very challenging and mostly comes with its own peculiar challenges especially for new entrants and must therefore be appreciated when well executed. 

The Speaker made the remarks when the family of the late MP for Nkwanta South, Gershon Kofi Bediako Gbediame, called on him in Parliament on Tuesday.
