The newly sworn-in Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan, has reacted to a description of her as a “bloody widow.”
According to a report by Citifmonline.com, she stated that she has forgiven the minority side in Parliament for the slur, and has called on the Lord to forgive them.
“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,” she said.
Alhassan added that she was surprised the ladies in Parliament joined in, as it defeats their aim of encouraging more ladies to join the House’s leadership.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the minority side in Parliament boycotted her swearing-in, as a result of the violence that rocked the recently held Ayawaso West Wuogon-by election.
Visiting victims of the attacks, she added women who are members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), surprised her, as she didn’t expect such an action from them.
