Final SoNA: Majority and Minority leaders clash in 'war of words' in Parliament

There was a bit of a subtle war of words traded between Ghana's Majority and Minority leaders in Parliament following the delivery of President Akufo-Addo's State of the Nation Address.

Majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu after the delivery of the last State of the Nation Address of the 7th Parliament of the 4th Republic moved for proceedings to go on.

However, the Minority leader of Parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, before seconding the motion, quizzed why the death of people in Techiman in line with alleged election violence was missing from the president's address.

He went on to add that should all the figures be tabulated, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) would have majority in Parliament.

Haruna Iddrisu then thanked President Akufo-Addo for serving the nation well before seconding the motion to adjourn the sitting.

To this, the Majority speaker sort of took exception and said that there were only two caucuses in parliament which were majority and minority.

Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu also asked the minority side to stop dreaming and come out of their dreamland because to him, the status quo was not going to change.

In the same address as reported by YEN.com.gh, President Akufo-Addo affirmed the nationally-acclaimed "fellow Ghanaians" nickname he was given in line with his COVID-19 updates and addresses to the nation.

While speaking at the last State of the Nation Address of the 7th Parliament of the 4th Republic on January 5, 2021, the president praised Ghanaian ingenuity in creating such a name.

The president went on to add that he was delighted that even in the face of the scare that hit the whole world due to the COVID-19, Ghanaians still showed creativity.

In the delivery of his address, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo also indicated that Ghana's local rice has grown in popularity and has become the preferred choice in many Ghanaian homes.

He went on to indicate that on the agricultural front, Ghana managed to stay afloat and cut down on imports of basic foodstuff that were hitherto not grown on a large scale in the country.
