    #SONA 2020: WHY Minority WALKED out

    The Minority in Parliament on Thursday dramatically boycotted this year’s State Of The Nation Address [SONA] without giving any ‘tangible’ reason.

    The Minority staged the walked out moments after the president, His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo entered the chamber to give his address.

    Oppressors Rule, Away, All For You!

    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”.

    Ironically, Members of the Majority side sent off their colleagues with chants of ‘away’ as well as ‘bye bye’.

    With the Minority having boycotted the House, the Majority then changes the song. In an elated mood, they tell the president they are all for him as they sing “all for you, Nana all for you,” a rendition of highlife legend ET Mensah’s song.

    No Vacant Seat

    As if that was not amusing enough, some members of the Majority then went over to fill up the seats vacated by the Minority caucus.

    Black Attire

    Earlier, the Minority had indicated their resolve to don “black attires” to express the ‘real state of the nation’.

    Former Energy Minister and MP for Ellembelle, Hon. Emmanuel Kofi Armah Buah, told OkayFM that “members of the minority will all be in a black attire“.

    The Minority (in Parliament) has the people of Ghana at heart and we represent their interest and so we are telling the president with our black attire that the people of Ghana are not interested in his kind of government and leadership,” he stated..

    Common Fund Wahala

    Snippets of information gathered indicates that Minority staged the walk-out over the delay of their share of the Common Fund for the Third Quarter of 2019.

    They contend its a deliberate attempt to deprive them of working effectively and competing fairly with their opponents, especially with the General Elections barely 10months away.
