The former member of Parliament for Kumbungu constituency, Ras Mubarak, has announced the dead of the Deputy Clerk of Parliament Robert Apodolla.
The former legislator took to his Facebook page to share his grievances.
According to Ras Mubarak, Parliament has lost one of its unsung icons who knew his work inside out, and For that Matter, Parliament owes him a befitting burial.
In January when I was researching for an article I was writing about Speakers of Parliament, Robert was available as always, to share his experiences of working with all past Speakers of Parliament of the 4th Republic. We spoke at length about his farm up north, his health, family and what I was doing after parliament. And I remember Robert encouraging me to prepare and run again for the Kumbungu seat.
It’s a shame he was passed over for the position of Clerk to Parliament. He took this injustice in his stride and insisted, “God’s time’s best.” The Parliament of Ghana has lost one of its unsung icons, a dedicated servant of parliament who knew his work inside out, and discharged his duties diligently. Rest in perfect peace Robert. The parliament of Ghana owes you a befitting funeral.
