- The deputy speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu, has called for investigations into the display of placards with the inscription 'bloody widow' in Parliament
- The leadership of the minority side has however claimed they had no idea of the plan to display the placards
The first deputy speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu, has called for sanctions to be meted on Members of Parliament (MPs) who were involved in a recent walkout during which they displayed placards with the inscription ‘bloody widow.’
Adomonline.com reports that Owusu announced this on the floor of the House after the leadership of the minority side denied knowledge of the incident.
He therefore directed staff of Parliament to search for the footage of the incident so that investigations into the matter could commence.
His directive comes after some minority members staged a walkout and displayed placards with the inscription ‘bloody widow.’
They reportedly argued that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan, benefited from bloodshed that left several people injured.
However, deputy minority leader, James Klutse Avedzi, said Owusu’s demand could not be met since the action of the minority was not an affront to either the MP or Parliament.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that ace broadcaster, Paul Adom Otchere, condemned the decision of the minority to brandish the placards.
