Akufo-Addo is a threat to our democratic journey —Haruna

The Minority in Ghana’s Parliament on Thursday walked out just as the President Nana Akufo-Addo was about given his State of the Nation Address as part of Article 67 which mandates the President to deliver SONA to the House. 

According to the Minority, they walked out because President Nana Akufo-Addo is a threat to Ghana’s democratic journey and they were mourning the threat to the death of Ghana’s democratic values.

“No one should attempt to give any other reasons for our walk out”, the Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu said on Thursday when he addressed the media just after the President concluded his address to give reason for their walk out.

The Minority leader pointed out that the President is an “eminent threat to our democracy” in some of his actions since becoming President. In conducting affairs of the state, he has acted in “authoritarian and tyranny style”, he indicated.

Mr. Iddrisu told the press the Minority would not be the kind of citizens who would show apathy because of his threat. They have restrained themselves in the face of provocation as well as its members across the country. 

“We remain one of the largest opposition political parties in Ghana and I would like to remind the Speaker and the President that Article 2 of the 1992 constitution enjoys us to defend the constitution, and parliament shall have no power to make Ghana one party state”.

He also served notice that, those thinking of dominating the Republic only confirm their fears that indeed there is intention by the current government to weaken the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
