Ghana’s SONA 2020: Minority in 'Black' walks out of Parliament, Majority in 'White' occupy minority seats to listen to the President

Clad in black attires, the men and women of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) protested against government’s failure to release some five percent of the District Assemblies’ Common Fund.
This was in fulfilment of an earlier promise of boycotting the 2020 State of the Nation Address.
While leaving the floor, the Majority side also chanted back: "Away!"
Soon after, the Majority members dressed in white redistributed themselves to fill the vacant seats before the President began his speech.
The country’s Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has, however, condemned the actions of the Minority.
In a tweet, he said, “we are setting very bad precedents in our democracy that have the ability to undermine the pillars of our governance. We need to be very careful not to destroy the things that uphold the state.”
