The Ablekuma Central MP, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful says the New Patriotic Party is ready to occupy NDC seats in Parliament come December 7 2020.
The MP who doubles as the Communications Minister was reacting to the Minority’s walkout on the State of the Nation Address delivered by President Akufo-Addo today February 20, 2020, in Parliament.
The members of the Minority caucus, clad in black, chanted parts of the national anthem as they walked out of the chamber shortly after President Nana Akufo-Addo assumed his seat in Parliament.
Explaining the reason for the walkout in a news conference, the NDC listed several incidents that they claim threatens Ghana’s democracy if not addressed by the President.
According to the Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, the President has conducted the affairs of state with the kind of “tyranny, despotism and authoritarianism that frightens many objective observers,” since he was elected President.
In response to the Minority’s boycott on Asempa FM on February 20 2020, Ursula Owusu indicated that: “We are ready come 7th December to wrestle every single seat and make sure that an NPP MP occupies the NDC seats since they are not prepared to be part of the business of the House”.
