Publish Short Commission report now – NDC demands

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on President Akufo-Addo, to without any delay, publish in full, the report of the Emile Short Commission of Enquiry. 

In a press release Monday, the party said since March 15, when the Commission submitted its report, the President, “for some unknown reason, is sitting on the said report.”

The Commission was set up by the President to investigate the violence that characterised the January 31, bye-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.  

According to the NDC, the feet dragging to make public the findings “is a blatant disregard for the principles of transparency and accountability that the President swore to uphold.”

The NDC said, although it boycotted the proceedings of the Short Commission, it believes that “the Ayawaso West Wuogon issue is a matter of intense national and international interest and that the people of Ghana deserve to know the findings and recommendation of the Commission.”

The parties National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, who signed the statement said what makes their demand imperative is that till date, the perpetrators of the violence at the bye-election who were captured live on videos, are still walking free.

“What is even more disturbing is that we still do not know the status of the police investigation into the said matter, despite assurances to the country,” he added.
