The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said that they are skeptical about the seriousness of the Emile Short Commission.
In a statement issued on Friday, February 8, 2019, and signed by the General Secretary of the party, the party revealed their opposing stance and said that the commission is a non stater.
The statement noted that it will not relent in seeking justice outside the commission's investigation for the victims.
The NDC mentioned that they do not trust the Emile Short Commission due to political colouring as well as the track record of President Akufo-Addo.
They again said that their position is enforced by the fact that President Akufo-Addo has already prejudged the incident as “isolated.”
NDC in providing further details alleged that there is no way the Commission of President Akufo-Addo's favourites will come to any conclusions that contradict his prior statements.
The statement warned that the President must take note about the appearance of political bias in such a matter as this has the same effect on the public confidence as its actuality.
The NDC in their statement assured that they will persist in their vigilance on behalf of the people of Ghana.
The Emile Short Commission was established to investigate and conduct inquiry into the violent incident that occurred during the Ayawaso by-election.
The commission is also to identify any person responsible for or who was involved in the events, associated violence and injuries.
But the opposition NDC who claim that those injured were their party loyalists have called bluff the commission.
Meanwhile the three member committee have began their investigation into the matter that has generated a lot of criticism for government.
