Patriotism campaigner and vociferous broadcaster, Blakk Rasta has commended the Parliament of Ghana for its decision to allow the use of local languages during proceedings in the house.

This decision came on the back of concerns raised by Members of Parliament regarding the growing neglect of local languages, especially in schools across the country, and the pressing need to curb this disturbing development.

The Speaker has indicated that plans are advanced to make some technological transformations at the chamber to facilitate the use of local languages during parliamentary proceedings during the next meeting of Parliament.

“What we will do is, during the next recess, we will definitely transform this Chamber, and we will try to put these IT systems in place and employ people to help us understand each other, because we will encourage members to speak in the local languages.” Speaker Bagbin disclosed.

“I am very excited about this development, and I doff my hat for Speaker Alban Bagbin. We must all applaud this.” Blakk Rasta stated on the Black Pot segment on his radio show on 3FM Urban Blend.

According to him, there are some legislators who cannot speak English fluently and for the fear of mockery, refuse to partake in debates on the floor.

“There are a lot of brilliant MPs who could have helped change a lot of things for the better if not for their inability to express themselves freely and fluently in English.” Blakk Rasta stated.

He further urged the legislators to take it a bit higher by wearing local dresses to Parliament and other state functions.

“If the speaker sometimes dresses like a Fulani warrior or an Ashanti King, then I think the Members of Parliament should not be dressing in foreign suits and ties” Blakk Rasta opined.

He added that any African President who dresses in suits is not setting a good example and demanded of them to wear their local dresses to promote and showcase their own African cultural heritage.
