The Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram, Samuel Nartey George, has called out President Akufo-Addo over his lack of political will to make structural changes to some state institutions.
According to him, Akufo-Addo's failure to implement recommendations of the Short Commission shows his lack of commitment to clean up the National Security, a Citi News report stated.
Sam George also happened to have suffered at the hands of the operatives of the National Security during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election violence.
His comments come after the recent assault on Citi News' Caleb Kudah by National Security operatives, and the invasion of the station’s premises by armed personnel.
Sam George underscored the need for Akufo-Addo to take bold steps to review the operations of the National Security.
Speaking on Citi TV's Point of View programme, he said if that is not done, the operatives will continue to attack citizens and infringe on their fundamental human rights.
The Ningo Prampram MP stated that he would expect a future NDC government to implement whatever recommendation the Emile Short Commission made.
