Alban Kingsford Sumana Bagbin  was born on 24th September 1957. He is a politician and currently the Second deputy speaker of Parliament. He is also the Member of Parliament for Nadowli kaleo.
Bagbin hails from Sombo in the Upper West Region.  He obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Law and English at the University of Ghana in 1980. He proceeded to the Ghana School of Law at Makola in Accra after which he was called to the bar in 1982.
In early 2010, he was appointed by Prof. Evans Atta Mills to head the Ministry of Water Resources, Works, and Housing and in 2012 shifted to the Ministry of Health as the Minister. He was later prevailed upon by Former President John Mahama in 2014 to leave his initial assignment to return to lead Parliament for the second time as the Majority Leader. After winning his Nadowli/Kaleo seat in 2016 elections, Bagbin became the only person to have won seven (7) consecutive elections in the history of Ghana. By the time the seventh (7th) Parliament of the 4th Republic ends in January 2021, Bagbin, who just celebrated his 60th birthday, would have done an exceptionally historic 28 years in Parliament.
