Political Historian, Professor Nana Essilfie Conduah is calling on Members of Parliament to put an end to the use of boycotts to register their displeasure.
Minority MPs staged a boycott in Parliament last week accusing President Akufo-Addo of threatening the country's democracy.
Reacting to the actions of the Minority, on Starr FM today, Professor Essilfie Conduah said boycotts have a devastating impact on the work of Parliament
Members of Parliament (MPs) from the Minority side on February 20 boycotted the 2020 State of the Nation Address (SONA) by President Akufo-Addo.
Meanwhile, in 2013, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Members in Parliament who were then the Minority, in a similar move boycotted the State of the Nation Address delivered by the then President John Dramani Mahama.
Their action was in line with their position not to engage in any activity that would appear to give legitimacy to Mr. Mahama’s presidency until the Supreme Court ruled on the petition brought before it which was then challenging the results of the 2012 presidential election.
