The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Member of Parliament for Bia East, Richard Acheampong has slammed critics calling in the Minority to apologise over the use of the ‘bloody widow’ placards during the swearing in of Lydia Seyram Alhassan.
He told Kwabena Agyapong on Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, the Minority was not attacking the state of the widow but the corrupt system that produced as MP.
He insisted the Minority will not recognise her as MP until they revise their notes.
He has also asked Ghanaians to desist from be attaching emotions to the issues and rather focus on the relevant issues raised.
According to him, they owe no one an apology because what they did the MP was nothing compared to what was dine to late Mills and former President John Dramani Mahama.
He also indicated that there was no nether way for them to have addressed the issue than what they did.
Parliament on Tuesday February 5 sworn in the newly elected Member of Parliament (MP) for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, Hon Lydia Seyram Alhassan.
The swearing in was done by the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament Hon. Joseph Owusu after she has taken the Oaths of Allegiance.
The Minority however walked out in protest against the swearing in.
Reacting to the incident, Deputy Majority Chief Whip, Moses Anim says what the Minority did was irresponsible and an act of indiscipline.
The NDC as a party he said does not regard women.
He challenged the NDC to go to the High Court if the do not recognise the elected MP adding, I expect the Minority to boycott parliament from now till 2020 because of they come to Parliament, I will hoot at them. The EC has declared the woman MP so why are they attacking her?
