The chamber of Parliament, could be in for some surprises, when the newly elected Members meet later this evening to choose a speaker for the next four years.
There are reports that, incumbent Speaker, Rev. Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye, will be put forward by the New Patriotic Party (NPP), as the Speaker of Parliament against Justice Jones Mawulorm Dotse and NPP National Chairman, Freddie W. Blay.
With hunged Parliament due to the 137 to 137 seats spilt between the NPP and National Democratic Congress (NDC), the only difference is not the additional votes that independent MP-elect from the Fomena constituency, Andrews Amoako Asiamah adds to the vote of the man who sacked him from the house in November in an embarrassing manner, following a dismissal letter from the NPP General Secretary, John Buadu, but rather the votes of two MPs who were lovers and have two kids together.
Kennedy Agyapong and Sarah Adwoa Sarfo for now, hold the keys to Prof Mike Oquaye's retention as Speaker; indeed they see him as divisive and selfish.
The 76 year-old Speaker, obviously preying on Adwoa Sarfo's marriage and the jealousy and hurt it will cause Kennedy Agyapong, who has two kids with the lady out of wedlock, contacted him for a favour.
Kennedy Agyapong ahead of the NPP parliamentary primary, had revealed that, despite having two children with Sarah Adwoa Safo, she doesn't take money for their upkeep from him.
He said Adwoa Safo caters for every need of the children, adding that the only thing she takes from him is money for their school fees.
The Assin Central MP, said this during an interview with Atinka TV, where he explained why he supported his baby mama during the NPP primaries.
"Adwoa, is so responsible towards the kids to the extent that she doesn't take chop money from me. Other kids I pay chop money. The only thing she takes is their school fees," Mr Agyapong said.
Mr Agyapong, further revealed that Speaker of Parliament, Prof. Aaron Mike Oquaye, contacted him to help his son, Mike Ocquaye Jr. unseat Adwoa Sarfo as the NPP's parliamentary candidate for Dome Kwabenya Constituency.
He said the Speaker's request surprised him, since he expected him (Speaker) to be neutral in such circumstances.
This, Mr Agyapong said, pushed him to rather throw his weight behind the woman with whom he has two children.
Adwoa Safo, eventually beat Oquaye Junior by polling 496 of the valid votes, while Mr Oquaye Jr garnered 488.
"I have two children with Adjoa Safo; a boy and a girl. I wanted to be neutral because I also like Speaker and his son (Mike Ocqaye Jr)," he said.
"But the Speaker made a mistake by asking me to help his son win against Adjoa Safo. As a Speaker you need to be neutral…So I decided to support Adwoa.
"If the Speaker thinks it's good for his son to win, then it's equally for good if my baby mama also wins. That is why I supported Adwoa," he added.
