Minority boycotts swearing-in of Lydia Alhassan

The Minority in Parliament on Tuesday, 5 February 2019 boycotted the swearing in of Ms Lydia Alhassan, who was elected the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency during the by-election on Thursday, 31 January 2019.

The election was marred with violence and attacks on some National Democratic Congress (NDC) supporters.

Heavily-armed National Security operatives shot and wounded several members of the opposition NDC at the private residence of the NDC’s candidate about an hour into the by-election.

Class 91.3FM’s Parliamentary correspondent, Ekow Annan who was in parliament on Tuesday reported that the minority raised placards with the inscription “bloody widow”.

Ms Alhassan is a wife of the late MP Emmanuel Kyeremateng Agyarko who died in the United States of America after seeking medical treatment.

She was sworn into office by the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament Joseph Osei Owusu.

Member of Parliament for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Safo extolled the competence of Ms Alhasssan after she was sworn in.

She said: “We know her competences, we know her courage, we know her endurance and we know her past records as a unifier, as a hardworking woman and a woman with a good heart.”
