Minority walks out of Parliament; boycotts Lydia Alhassan’s swearing-in
The Minority has walked out of Parliament in protest of the swearing in of newly elected MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan.
Some Minority MPs shouted shame and jeered as the Speaker of Parliament read the summons from the Electoral Commission.
Some also held up placards which read “bloody widow”, in reference to the confusion in the incidents of brutality from National Security personnel during the by-election.
“In commiseration to support our comrades and citizens that were unnecessary hurt and brutally assaulted, I am sorry to say we cannot indulge in this. Our side of the house cannot be here to witness this swearing in,” the Minority Chief Whip, Muntaka Mubarak said on the floor of the House.
