- NDC's candidate in the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, Delali Kwesi Brempong, has said he is ready to appear before the Commission of Inquiry
- He however admitted that he is yet to receive an invitation from the commission
- Brempong also took the opportunity to say that it is untrue guns were fired from his residence
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) parliamentary candidate for the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election, Delali Kwesi Brempong, has declared his interest in appearing before the Justice Emile Short Commission.
According to a report by Starrfmonline.com, he stated that the commission is yet to invite him formally to testify.
He explained that he would willingly oblige so he could assist the commission with respect to the violence that occurred during the by-election.
Violence erupted at the Bawaleshie Park area during the election, resulting in six persons sustaining gunshot wounds.
Six others were allegedly arrested and armed masked men reportedly from the National Security assaulted several others.
Speaking in an interview on Kasapa FM, Brempong disputed claims by the national security minister, Albert Kan Dapaah, that the gunshots fired at LA Bawaleshie on the day of the election came from his house.
“I am a pharmacist and not a gun manufacturer, so how could I fire gun shots from my house?” Brempong asked.
In answer to a question of why he opted out of the by-election, he stated that it was because of the violence that occurred.
“So how could I cause such atrocities and turn out to say I am opting out?” Brempong wondered.
The three-member Commission of Inquiry set up by President Akufo-Addo has a month to complete its public hearings.
