On Friday, November 26, 2021, all 137 Minority Members of Parliament voted against the motion when the question was put forward by Speaker Alban Bagbin.

The Majority had earlier walked out of the house after a disagreement with the Speaker on the presence of the General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia.

Sitting was subsequently adjourned till Tuesday at 10 am in the forenoon.

This development has got Ghanaians talking, on Twitter and there have been different reactions.

Some users are applauding the minority members over their decision whilst others have also called out the Majority and Speaker for acting in bad faith.
