“I was in pain”- Watch how Lydia Alhassan ‘sadly’ responded to this question during vetting  

The Minister designate for Sanitation and Water Resources, Lydia Seyram Alhassan,  on Tuesday got emotional and broke down in tears before the Appointment Committee of Parliament.

This was when she was asked questions about the 2019 Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary by-election disturbances.

She told the committee that she was no where near the incident and could not be held responsible for the violence at the Bawaleshie polling station.

“I was in pain (apparently referring to the death of her husband which led to the by-election) and couldn’t have been involved in any violence,” she said.

Her answer to the question asked by the Minority Leader, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson, was truncated briefly as the chairman of the committee, Joseph Osei Owusu, tried to calm her down.
