Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan has become the new subject of social media attacks after describing her opponent in the upcoming election, John Dumelo as a shallow thinker.

The MP who arrived late to a debate organized for parliamentary candidates in the constituency, November 27, 2020, did not mince any words at all in bashing John Dumelo for taking some decisions without consulting the Municipal Assembly.

While addressing controversies that arose after Mr. Dumelo was ordered by the Assemblies to stop dredging gutters in the constituency in June this year, Lydia Alhassan said “you don’t just get up and start doing things. If you are a deep thinker, you’ll realize that people just don’t get up and start dredging gutters.”

The MP’s comments only triggered disruption of the debate after Mr. Dumelo demanded a retraction and apology.

However, that only amounted to chasing the wind, as the show ended without her apology.

Meanwhile, some Ghanaians who were following the debate keenly took to their various social media pages to express disappointment in the NPP MP for what they described as her disrespectful and unruly behaviour during the debate.

To many who claimed to be constituents, the MP’s only shot herself in the foot with her unruly behaviour because it helped them to conclude their decision on whom to vote for on December 7.

Some others who described her as a disgrace for arriving just 15 minutes to the end of the show, predicted a heavy defeat for following her behaviour.
