Ghana’s Speaker of Parliament, Edward Doe Adjaho stormed out of the Chamber Wednesday in the middle of proceedings.

Adjaho’s fury, according to XYZ News’ Parliamentary Correspondent, Ibrahim Alhassan, followed an aside comment passed by Minority Legislator Kweku Agyemang Manu, while his microphone was on.

“He just doesn’t want me to talk”, the Chairman of the Public Accounts Committee said to the hearing of the Speaker during the second day of debate on the 2014 budget in the Chamber, as he and other MPs struggled to catch the eyes of the Speaker to be allowed to contribute to the debate.

Agyemang Manu’s comment was a protest to a perceived snub by the Speaker, after his fellow Minority MP for Tema East, Nii Kwartei Titus-Glover, was given preference over him.

The PAC Chairman quickly apologised and retracted the leaked comment after Adjaho, in a fit of fury, threatened to walk him out of the Chamber.

The Speaker then handed over proceedings to his first Deputy, Ebo Barton-Oduro, and stormed out of the Chamber with anger.
