“Help Build Confidence in Women and Stop intimidation” – Assemblywoman

Hon. Comfort Yaa Darbo made these response to a local radio which called her to share her opinion on the boycott in Parliament when some Minority Members of Parliament ignored the Ayawaso West Wuogon Member of Parliament MP, Ms Seyram Lydia Alhassan.

The Minority Members of Parliament (MPs) on Monday refused to comment on a statement by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, sticking to their decision of not recognising her as legitimate winner of the recent by-election in that constituency.

The NPP MP, Ms Seyram Lydia Alhassan, was delivering her maiden statement on the floor of the House since she was sworn in on February 5, 2019.

It was in commmemoration of World Health Day observed every April 7, but the Minority boycotted the event.

While Ms Alhassan spoke, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs cast disinterested glances around the chamber.

The Minority Chief Whip Muntaka Mohammed turned down the Speaker’s invitation to the Minority caucus to wade into the statement.

The minority MPs say they want justice for their assaulted party members during the January 31, 2019 by-election.

The Women Advocate opined that some of these actions from our male counterparts are some form of discrimination which the world is trying to avoid in order to bust confidence in women to achieve the fifty percent (50%) women representation in decision making.
