Members of the minority side of parliament today walked out of parliament as when the President Nana Akuffo Addo arrived in parliament to deliver the State of the Nation Address .
The side which is made up the opposition National Democratic Congress earlier announced they will be boycotting the sitting, made their way out when the national anthem ended.
They moved out repeating a part of the anthem that says ‘and help us to resist oppressors rule with all our will and might forever more’.
However,some minority members had plaque card written”Free and Fair Election Is Not Negotiable”
Meanwhile,members of the majority side sent off the minority with chants of ‘away’ as well as ‘bye bye’.
The members of the minority side earlier expressed frustration about the delay of their share of the Common Fund for the third quarter of 2019, as they say it is delaying the execution of projects in their constituencies.
The opposition National Democratic Congress MPs last week resolved to boycott the State of the Nation Address (SONA).
For the Minority in Parliament, the delay is a deliberate attempt to deprive them of working effectively and consequently competing fairly with their opponents, especially when the general election is some months away.
