on

The Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin, has appealed to the people of Upper West Region to exercise patience and have trust in their Members of Parliament regarding decisions taken in Parliament.

He said Parliament would always work in the interest of Ghanaians, adding that, what was required was the total support of the people and feedback to make good decisions.

Mr Bagbin made the appeal when he paid a courtesy call on the overlord of the Waala Kingdom, Wa Naa Fuseini Seidu Pelpuo IV, and his subjects at his palace on Wednesday.

He appealed to the people to embrace peace and unity which for him were crucial for development and eschew the tendency of allowing politics to divide them instead of developing them.

The Speaker of Parliament also touched on the need to empower women in order to create a better society, adding that, when women are empowered it would have a positive impact on generations.

Mr Bagbin also emphasised the need for the people to prioritise the education of their children, adding that, but for education, he would not have attained the level he had attained now.

 “No matter how difficult things are, never give up on your children’s education – I also came from a humble background and you can also do it for your children,” he said.

On the purpose of his visit, Mr Bagbin said he was in the region to thank the chiefs and people for their prayers and support since his election as Speaker, whose role is to help develop the region and the country at large.

Wa Naa Pelpuo, in a speech read on his behalf, touted Mr Bagbin’s achievements in Parliament and said his election as Speaker was a well-deserved one.

He pledged that the people of the region would continue to support him to succeed in his role as the Speaker, but urged him not to forget to help address the peculiar challenges of the region.

The Overlord of Waala particularly mentioned the infrastructure deficit in the Simon Diedong Dombo University of Business and Integrated Development Studies (SDD-UBIDS) and the Wa Technical University.

British Prime Minister Drops Covid-19 Restrictions Eventhough Omicron Is At It’s Peak

British Prime Minister Drops Covid-19 Restrictions Eventhough Omicron Is At It's Peak
Face masks will no longer be mandatory in public places and schools in England and Covid-19 passports will be dropped for large events as infections level off in large parts of the country, British Prime Minister, Boris Johnson said Wednesday.

Johnson told lawmakers that the restrictions were being eased because government scientists believed it was likely that the surge of infections prompted by the highly contagious Omicron variant “has now peaked nationally.”

While hospitals in northern England are still under pressure because of high caseloads, Johnson said hospital admissions and patients in intensive care units elsewhere in England were stabilizing or falling.

The government will no longer advise people to work from home and beginning next Thursday mandatory COVID-19 passes will not be required to gain entry to large-scale events.

Compulsory face masks will be scrapped in classrooms starting Thursday as well, and from next week they will not be legally required anywhere in England.

“We will trust the judgment of the British people and no longer criminalise anyone who chooses not to wear one,” Johnson said.

The restrictions were introduced in December to slow the rapid spread of Omicron variant and buy time for the population to get their booster vaccine shot.

Johnson said Wednesday that more than 90 per cent of those over 60 in the U.K. have now had their booster shot. Official figures showed that COVID-19 infections have dropped in most parts of the U.K. for the first time since early December, with 94,432 new positive cases recorded on Tuesday.

The requirement for those infected to self-isolate for five full days remains, but Johnson said that measure will also end in the coming weeks. He said while the self-isolation rule expires on March 24 he will seek to scrap it earlier if the virus data continues to improve.

“As COVID-19 becomes endemic, we will need to replace legal requirements with advice and guidance, urging people with the virus to be careful and considerate of others,” he said.

Britain has the second-worst pandemic death toll in Europe after Russia, with over 153,000 confirmed virus-related deaths.
