The Minority side of Ghana’s Parliament has staged a walkout of the Chamber, leaving their respective seats to the Majority at the 2020 State of the Nation’s Address.
The walkout comes after the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has entered the Chamber to address the nation on the current state of the country.
Before walking out of the Chamber, each member of the Minority left on their seats, a plaque with specific inscriptions to register their displeasure with the current government.
The Minority action will be recorded as an International embarrassment to the nation, since dignitaries and members of the Diplomatic Corps were all present to witness the big day.
Without stating their reasons for the walkout, the Majority is now occupying the 275 seats in Ghana’s Parliament.
The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, was expected to deliver his fourth State of the Nation Address (SONA) in Parliament on Thursday February 20, 2020, in accordance with Article 67 of the 1992 Constitution.
The annual event is to give the President an opportunity to account for his leadership over the last year, and also project the plans of the government for the upcoming year.
