I forgive you – Lydia Alhassan to Minority over ‘bloody widow’ tag

The newly elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan has forgiven the Minority MPs who described her as a bloody widow during her swearing-in.

The Minority boycotted her swearing-in in protest of the violence that rocked the by-election held last week Thursday.

Prior to walking out of the swearing-in ceremony, the minority waved papers which read “bloody widow,” an action NDC’s Kumbungu MP, Ras Mubarak defended.

But Lydia Alhassan who visited some of the victims who were wounded as a result of the violence recorded that the by-election said she has forgiven the Minority for the slur.

“I don’t know what their interest is but I will say that I have forgiven them and I ask our good Lord to forgive all of them. Time will heal my wounds and time will tell my story,” the MP said.
