The Minority Chief Whip Mohamed Muntaka Mubarak has indicated to the Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Micheal Oquaye that the Minority would not participate in the debate of the State of the Nation Address (SONA).

According to Muntaka, it is a decision the Minority has taken not to participate in the 2020 SONA debate that was delivered by President Akufo-Addo on Thursday.

This was as a result of the Minister of Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah moving the motion for the debate to start on the floor and it was time for it to be seconded.

Dr. Mark Assibey-Yeboah, Chairman of the Finance Committee was on this feet to second the motion, and the Majority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu on his part noted that there was nothing wrong if the Minority has decided not to participate in the debate of SONA.

The Majority Leader noted that the right of the Minority not to participate should be respected since they cannot be forced to participate, as the Minority were in their chair looking on whiles the debate went on and on.
