Ghanaian political and entertainment blogger, Joseph Naah-Yerreh popularly known as Dada Joe has called out the minority in parliament for walking out of parliament before the president’s state of the nation address delivery today, 20th February, 2020.
Just before the president settled in the parliament chamber, the minority in all black walked out of the chamber holding placards with various inscriptions.
Their reason for walking out, as stated by Hon. Sampson Ahi last Friday is that the MPs common funds are yet to be released by the government.
But Dada Joe, in reacting to their staged walk out said it was a moot move for them to walk out when it wasn’t just the common fund of the Minority that was yet to be released but that of all Members of Parliament.
He added that, it was also a hypocritical move considering that these same members of parliament didn’t see the need to walk out of parliament when they were enjoying the alleged double salaries in the erstwhile administration.
“You walk out for unpaid common funds but stayed in parliament to enjoy double salaries. #ShamfulMinority” he wrote in a Facebook post.
