The Member of Parliament for the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, Lydia Seyram Alhassan has visited victims of La Bawaleshie violence in Accra.

Seyram Alhassan known as Mama Lydia, was at the hospital to pledge her support to them.

Accompanied by the National organizer of the ruling New Patriotic Party, (NPP), Sammi Awuku and a Deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide, Mama Lydia also settled the hospital bills of the victims and pledged to cater for any further expenses that may be incurred in the course of the treatment.

The visit comes a day after the Minority in Parliament staged a walk-out during her swearing-in and wielding placards some of which read ‘’Bloody Widow’’.

Most Ghanaians have condemned the action of the Minority describing it as an insult to widows and women in politics and has called on the Minority to apologise to the MP.
