NPP was not wrong to boycott 2013 SONA, the NDC's action this time is rather unacceptable - Oppong Nkrumah
The Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the Minority's decision to walk out of Parliament during the 2020 State of the Nation Address is unaccepted and undermines our democracy.
The Minority gave a number of reasons for their action and said the number one reason is oppression by President Akufo-Addo.
They then referred the Majority to 2013 when they were the Minority and how they boycotted then President Mahama's State of the Nation Address.
Mr. Oppong Nkrumah, however, believes that the NPP's action back in 2013 was on the right path as they were challenging the legitimacy of then-President Mahama.
Clad in black, one after the other, the minority members of parliament ‘angerly’ walked out of the chamber shortly after President Akufo-Addo took his seat to deliver the State of the Nation Address (SONA) on Thursday, February 20, 2020.
They held a presser shortly which was chaired by Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu. They said their views and inputs into matters affecting the nation are often shelved by the Majority and that is not helping democracy in the country.
