It has been revealed that an aspiring parliamentary candidate in the Madina constituency, Prince Moses Zakaria, who claimed to have worked as a media coordinator in Alban Bagbin’s office when he [Bagbin] was the Minority leader, lied.
The aspiring candidate claimed to have worked as the media coordinator for the then-Minority under the leadership of Alban Bagbin.

In response to an enquiry in respect of Mr. Prince Moses Zakaria the Rt. Hon. Speaker, Kingsford Alban Sumana Bagbin, said, *”No such position existed in the office of the Minority Leader when I was in that Office between 2001 and January 2009. There was dubious character by name Mr. Zakaria hovering around Parliament at that time. When my attention was drawn to him, I instructed Marshall not to entertain him in the precincts of Parliament”.
The Rt. Hon. Speaker stated this on 27th February 2023 when he responded to a letter dated 21st February 2023 in respect of the said Prince Moses Zakaria.
