|The Association of Kayayeis’ in Ghana has condemned the Minority Caucus for walking out during the swearing-in ceremony of the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency, Lydia Seyram Alhassan on Tuesday, 5th January, 2019 and also describing her as a “bloody widow”.|
According to the Minority MPs, they boycotted Lydia Seyram Alhassan’s swearing-in because they did not want to give credence to her victory in the by-election on Thursday, 31st January, 2019, which was characterized by violence.
Heavily-armed National Security operatives shot and wounded supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress at the private residence of the party’s candidate about an hour into the by-election last Thursday.
Speaking on Peace FM News, Thursday, February 07, 2019, leader of the association, Hajia Adiza popularly known as ‘Zongo Pioneer’ said “All my followers are sad. I am really sad because I am also a widow. What the minority did was wrong and must be condemned by all.”
She however threatened to gather her members to demonstrate against the minority if they fail to apologize to Lydia Seyram Alhassan.
“We will stage a massive demonstration against the NDC. We will rally women to vote against them in 2020,” she threatened.
