Parliament of Ghana sued

Parliament was yesterday served with a writ seeking to place an injunction on its attempt to recruit a new Director of Development.

The writ was filed by 1st Law Chambers on behalf of Kofi Safo-Duodu, who has held the position for many years until he was purportedly demoted by former Speaker of Parliament Ebenezer Begyina Sakyi Hughes.

The office of the Clerk to Parliament was served with the writ yesterday afternoon, setting the stage for a legal showdown.

The Parliamentary Service Board is recruiting a new Director of Development, having placed advertisement in the newspapers.

This decision to sidestep Mr Safo-Duodu is brewing tension in Parliament because the plaintiff has been the substantive Director of Development for many years.

Critics say the attempt to displace him is a wrong move because his demotion by the current Board is bizarre.

Parliament this week placed an advertisement in some newspapers seeking to invite applications from suitably qualified persons to apply for the post of Director of Development.

Among the qualifications required for the post is a postgraduate degree in architectural design, civil engineering, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering or any related discipline with a minimum of 10 years working experience.   Read More
