Habib Iddrissu- (2nd Deputy Majority Whip And M.P, Tolon), Hon. Davis Ansah Opoku – (M.P, Mpraeso) and Hon. Yves Nii Noi Hanson-Nortey, (M.P, Tema Central).
In a motion, the MPs proposed that “That, this Honourable House constitutes a bi-partisan committee; “To unravel the unending mystery surrounding the death of late President Mills which sad event occurred on 24th July, 2012.”
The lawmakers would be required to provide the reasons for their motion when it is admitted by the Speaker and tabled for discussion.
