Not long ago the Minority in Parliament threatened to boycott President Akufo-Addo’s final state of the nation address over failure to release the MPs Common Fund.
MP for Bodi Sampson Ahi gave government up to Friday to release the funds or will face their wrath.
“The minority members met and we have realized that the government has taken a decision to deprive members of parliament from working effectively in our various constituencies. We are saying this because close to two months ago the government released the district assembly common funds to the district assemblies…as we speak we don’t when they are going to release the MPs share and we see this to be a deliberate attempt on the part of the government to stifle us, being an election year”, he said.
President Akufo-Addo is currently addressing Parliament on the state of the nation at Parliament House in Accra without minority MPs
And yes of course the minority stuck to their plan as they have given the president empty seats to talk to.
