The National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party,Mr. Sammi Awuku in a facebook post has condemned the behaviour of the minority in parliament towards Madam Lydia Alhassan, who was sworn in on Tuesday, 5th February, 2019 as the MP for Ayawaso West Wuogon.
The minority led by their chief whip,Muntaka Mohammed- Mubarak walked out when the new MP was about to be swore in and displayed placards caption “Bloody Widow” as a protest of what happened during the by election.
Below is the full statement of what Mr. Sammi Awuku wrote on Facebook;
“I do not think that the proponents of democracy envisaged the terrible conduct of the minority in parliament yesterday as a feature of democracy. To “welcome” a yet-to-be sworn-in member of parliament in such a manner was just not RIGHT.
It is rather unfortunate that these legislators who contribute to the advocacy of women empowerment and laws against discrimination and infringement of human rights, behaved in such a distasteful manner.Then again,it is surprising how men born of women exhibited such glaring disrespect!
Such an irony!!!
The minority should bow down their heads in SHAME for their GROSS misconduct yesterday.”
