Member of Parliament(MP) of North Tongu Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has vowed to get justice for persons who were killed or injured during the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary Elections. Mr Ablakwa made his resolve known after the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ) responded to a petition he and a colleague MP had presented to it.
For Mr Ablakwa, persons who were killed during the elections were victims of “reckless bloodthirsty goons” and just must be served.
“There will be no compromise or rest on our part until justice is manifestly done, not only for the 7 innocent Ghanaians gruesomely killed but also for the many having to suffer permanent life-altering injuries such as young journalist Pious Kwanin Asiedu.
Never again!” Mr Ablakwa wrote.
During the 2020 General Elections, seven persons lost their lives following shooting incidents by security officers. Several others got injured. But eight months down line, the victims are yet to get justice.
As a result, Mr Ablakwa and the MP for Ellembelle Emmanuel Armah Kofi Buah have jointly petitioned CHRAJ to look into the happenings that led to the deaths and injuries of the people and hold persons and agencies who had oversight on the security officers to account.
