Ejura Probe : Do good job to stamp your solid records- Mahama Ayariga to Committee
Member of Parliament for Bawku Central Mahama Ayariga has called on the Justice George Koomson-led committee to do a good job to stamp their solid already accomplished track records and reputation to inspire confidence in the citizenry.
The committee led by Appeal Court Justice George Koomson also includes International Relations Expert Dr. Vladimir Antwi Danso, Executive Director of Penblusbytes Juliet Amoah as members and Principal State Attorney Louis Simmons as Secretary.
The committee tasked to probe Ejura shootings, is expected to commence work today, wrap up sitting and produce report within ten days for resolving excesses occurred.
The latest call by the ECOWAS Parliament Lawmaker Ayariga follows the concerns of many that it is a total waste of time and resources which outcome will be left to gather dust.
Even before the committee hits the grounds running, former Deputy Interior Minister James Agalga and President of Catholic Bishop Conference Most Rev. Philip Naameh have questioned the independence of the committee to work without interference of President Akufo-Addo and his Security Sector Minsters including Ambrose Dery, Dominic Nitiwul and others.
The Minority Spokesperson on Defence and Interior Committee James Agalga doubts the political will of Akufo-Addo regime to implement recommendations of the committee, insisting the “hands of the good and tactical strikers are tied, Akufo-Addo is noted for appointing good strikers just to tie their hands”. The grounds for his argument are because the Emile Short-Led Committee report on Ayawaso West Wuogon violence was left in the incubator without giving birth to remedy and a lot more lack of political interference culminating into a culture of silence built in society by President Akufo-Addo.
Speaking in an interview monitored by African editors on Monday 4 July 2021 in Accra, the Harvard-trained Lawyer Mahama Ayariga said the “Committee members are solid, let them do a good job to vindicate already proven track records and reputation”.
