Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan has donated GHc5,000 towards the medical care of persons who were injured in the violence that rocked last Thursday’s by-election held in her constituency.
She made the donation when she visited injured persons at the 37 Military Hospital on Wednesday.
“As the MP, it is my first duty to come around and visit those injured,” she said.
MP for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George and some NDC party members were beaten by National Security personnel last Thursday during the by-election.
The attacks have widely been condemned.
The Minority boycotted swearing-in of the Lydia on Tuesday in protest of the violence that rocked the by-election.
Prior to walking out of the swearing-in ceremony, the minority waved papers which read “bloody widow,” an action NDC’s Kumbungu MP, Ras Mubarak, vehemently defended.
I forgive you – Lydia Alhassan to Minority over ‘bloody widow’ tag
But Lydia Seyram Alhassan says she’s forgiven the Minority MPs who described her as a bloody widow.
“I don’t know what their interest is but I will say that I have forgiven them and I ask our good Lord to forgive all of them. Time will heal my wounds and time will tell my story,” the MP said.
The Minority in Parliament earlier on Tuesday stormed the police headquarters in Accra in solidarity with Sam George who suffered in the hands of the security forces deployed to provide security at the election.
The Minority MPs further called on the police to arrest perpetrators of the attacks.
