Tomorrow 7th January 2021 is the inauguration of the president-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and as at now, 13 Africa presidents (including leaders) have been revealed as attendees for the event tomorrow.
The inauguration Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will take place in the precinct of Parliament.
The elected lawmakers have been seated currently as they finalize the the dissolution of the 7th parliament and the inauguration of the 8th Parliament of Ghana’s 4th Republic.
From pictures sighted by Thedistin.com on Citi Fm Facebook page, a serious drama has ensued in parliament this evening.
The sitting arrangement in parliament has always been this way; majority members of parliament are seated on the right hand side of Mr Speaker while the minority are always seated at left hand side in parliament.
Tonight, as there is a dissolution of parliament at the same time an inauguration which commenced at 12 pm saw the sitting arrangement otherwise.
The NDC MPs mostly in white immediately moved to occupy the seats of the NPP, click here to see more pictures of NDC MPs occupying seats of NPP MPs at parliament.
New development surrounding the confusion in parliament ahead of Akufo-Addo’s inauguration is MP for Ablekuma West, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, who ended up on the floor as NPP and NDC MPs argued over who should be allowed to sit on the majority side of Parliament.
As to whether she was pushed down by her colleague MP, Thedistin.com is yet to be told.
Below are pictures that show Ursula Owusu-Ekuful on the floor:
Also, as part of the drama ongoing in parliament currently, NPP MP for Adansi Asokwa, K.T Hammond caused a stir in Parliament a little earlier when he arrived.
Having been rumoured to be out of the country, K.T Hammond stepped into the House and demanded that the NDC MPs vacate the Majority side of Parliament.
He was eventually ushered away by the NDC MP for Pru East, Kwabena Donkor, click here to see pictures.
