Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, a Ghanaian politician was caught on camera comfortably sitting on another man’s lap during the inauguration of Ghana’s 8th parliament on Wednesday.
The incident happened in the parliament before a fight broke out between New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) members over who takes the majority side in the parliament following the dissolution of the 7th parliament.
Mrs. Ursula reportedly was forced from her seat. She was then seen immediately pushing an MP-elect from a seat but Kwabena Mintah Akandoh, the MP-elect for Juaboso on whose lap Mrs. Ursula was seen sitting, tried to explain what actually happened.
Narrating the incident in a Joy News interview, he said: “When the New Patriotic Party MPs came in, they saw that we were on the right side so they went to the left but Ursula refused.
“Cletus Avoka was sitting down and decided to go to the washroom, by the time he came back Ursula had taken his seat. We tried to persuade her but she declined.
“She also left the seat and I sat on it. When she came she just sat on my lap. She didn’t say anything to me, she just sat and I didn’t say anything”.
