Ghana is not in a state of insecurity - NPP MP

- The MP for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah, has dismissed reports that Ghana is in a state of insecurity

- This was after the minority had expressed fears about a series of unexplained deaths in Ghana

- Amankwah added that the deaths are not a yardstick to determine the porosity of Ghana's borders

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Manhyia North, Collins Owusu Amankwah, has stated that Ghana is not in a state of insecurity.

His comments come after the minority side in parliament raised concerns about how insecure Ghana has become after the current administration took office.

In an interview with Rainbow Radio Ghana, Amankwah, who is also the Vice Chairman of the Committee on Defence and Interior, argued that the claims and reasons assigned by the minority in Parliament are weightless and lack logical reasoning.

Rainbowradioonline reports that he further noted the deaths of five people cannot be a yardstick to determine how porous Ghana’s borders are.

Addressing a press conference on Monday, January 21, 2019, a ranking member of the defence and interior committee, James Agalga, called on the president to implement measures to stem the alarming incidents of contract killings and robberies in Ghana.

‘’For instance, according to statistics from the Ghana Police Service, incidents of robbery cases recorded at the end of year 2017 were 1,772 as compared to 1,397 in 2016.

This figure represents a 27% increase. The situation did not improve in 2018 as robbery cases alone hit 968 in the first quarter,’’ the minority revealed.

Amankwah reacted by claiming that Ghana went through similar incidents during the NDC era, but no one described Ghana’s security as unstable.

He added that the minority was selective and economical with the truth, and the statistics used did not represent the truth.

He therefore asked the minority to allow the relevant agencies to conduct a professional investigation over the matter.
