A security analyst, Adam Bonaa, has urged the government to ensure that the committee set-up to prove the violence in Ayawaso is on live television.
He said a live television broadcast of the sittings will ensure the credibility of the process and its final outcome.
Bonaa has insisted that persons who carried out the brutalities must be punished to deter persons who intend to foment trouble during the 2020 polls to stand-down.
“Let us have an open house inquiry where the media will be invited so we view this on live TV so that we follow sitting-by-sitting how this will go just so that that in 2020, we will all be assured that we have learnt lessons and those who do this will be punished and those who are planning to do same, will know that they will be shamed and punished,” he said.
Mr. Bonaa wants the presidency to ensure that the Minister of state in charge of National Security, Bryan Acheampong and other security heads, to step aside until the commission concludes its work.
“They should be immediately be interdicted while this inquiry begins but the first person who should be asked to step aside is Byran Acheampong since according to him he led this team.” he said.
The vice president, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday, February 6, 2019, set up a Commission of Inquiry to probe circumstances leading to the violence that occurred during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election last Thursday, January 31, 2019.
The decision was taken with the consent of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who is out of the country.
The Commission will be chaired by former Commissioner at the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), Justice Emile Short while former Dean of the Faculty of Law of GIMPA and private legal practitioner, Mr. Ernest Kofi Abotsi has also been appointed as Secretary to the Commission.
