Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Yesterday, February 20, 2020, the minority in parliament succeeded in doing what they had vowed to do days ago before the presentation of the State of the Nation's Address by President Akufo-Addo.
Their actions are believed to be based on a lot of issues they earlier expressed their misgivings about.
Inasmuch as they have tried to justify their actions, Ghanaians believe what they did was not proper especially when there were foreign diplomats present at the event.
In a Twitter post shared by the German Ambassador to Ghana asking what their opinions on the issue were, Ghanaians minced no words as they expressed their anger and disgust over what transpired.
Their reactions to his post, show how unpleasantly they took the news.
Barbara said it is entirely shameful:
Ransford said they have always been petty and childish:
Wages said it was not right but NPP would have done same:
Nii said Ghana is now a failed state:
Acheampong said their attitude clearly showed how incompetent they are:
Monocode said despite the fact that it is not the first time it is happening, it is quite shameful:
Meanwhile, Member of Parliament for Ablekuma Central, who doubles as the minister of communication, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, has reproached the Minority caucus in parliament for boycotting the State of the Nation Address.
The minority which announced earlier that they would be boycotting the session found their way out of parliament immediately the national anthem ended.
Speaking on the matter, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful without mincing words, said the decision to boycott the proceedings was senseless.
