Minority in parliament to demand identities of masked men at police headquarters

Must Read

The Minority in Parliament has announced that it will from Tuesday, march to the police headquarters in Accra to demand the identities of masked armed men, who besieged the La Bawaleshie Presby School Polling Station during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.

Member of Parliament for the Tamale North Constituency Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini hinted on this on Accra based TV3 that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs will continue to march to the police headquarters until the identities of the men have been revealed.

According to the Tamale North MP, the claims by the police that they do not know the men who were driving in a their SWAT vehicle do not add up.

He added that further claims by Minister of State in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong, that the masked men were from the National Security Council but failing to disclose their identities do not also wash, thus their resolve to demand answers from the police headquarters.

Mr. Suhuyini also bemoaned the manner in which the whole issue was handled especially at the top hierarchy of the powers that be.

He said the Presidency and the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) should have taken full charge of the situation and given Ghanaians assurances but that according to him did not appear to be a dire situation for them.
“It’s as if it’s business as usual,” he said, reiterating his position that the President and the EC commissioner did not take the issue seriously.

Mr. Suhuyini cautioned that as a nation, Ghana must tread cautiously in order not to compromise the peace it has enjoyed over the years, noting: “Peace is the most important commodity Ghana has and must not be joked with”.
Meanwhile, the Chief Executive Officer of the Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC), Stephen Amoah, who was also a panellist on the show, observed there is the need for the NDC and NPP to come to terms over how to deal with political violence, something he described as an age-long phenomenon.
