In a related development, 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 Parlemanet 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.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court has quashed the interim injunction placed on the gazetting the electoral results of the Hohoe parliamentary results showing Peter Amewu as winner.
A five-member panel of the Supreme Court quashed the decision of the Ho High Court aimed at stopping Peter Amewu from holding himself as MP-elect of Hohoe constituency.
