New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the people of Okaikwei North Constituency in Accra, Issah Fuseini has described as a disservice, the decision by the minority members of parliament to stage a walkout of parliament yesterday during the state of the nation presentation by President Akufo Addo.
According to him, it is a complete disservice done to the people the NDC MPs represent.
The minority had staged a walkout right after the national anthem had been sung.
Justifying their actions, minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu said “Since becoming President of our republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has conducted the affairs of state with the kind of tyranny, despotism and authoritarianism that frightens many objective observers”.
“We have in the face of extreme provocation exercised restraint and urged the president to depart from his perilous path that puts the democracy of our country at great risk.
Sadly, matters are totally out of control. The democracy we all toiled and sacrificed to establish is now threatened by the highhandedness of President Akufo-Addo. The man who in opposition styled himself as a champion democrat has turned out to be a nightmare and an existential threat to our fledgling democracy” he said.
