Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Mr. Samuel Nartey George, has indicated that the report of the Ayawaso West Wuogon Commission of Inquiry (Justice Emile Short Commission) has vindicated him on his claims of no hopes of justice from the current government.


He stated that the position of the government in the accompanying White Paper on the Commission’s report reinforces his long held view that the dastardly actions of January 31, 2019, at the La Bawaleshie Presbyterian School had the approval of the government.

In a press statement signed by the MP, Mr. Sam George added that the disagreement with the findings and recommendations of the Commission is a testament to the government’s deliberate attempt to cause violence.

The Ningo-Prampram MP further explained that the President, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, and the National Security have an agenda to cause violence and instability in the country.

“This is the clearest sign yet that the President and his security team have a grand agenda of unleashing violence and undermining the peace, stability and safety of our beloved Republic so long as it perpetuates his failing government in power”, he lamented.

The Emile Short Commission of Inquiry Report was presented to the President for a White Paper to be issued in a period of six months, in accordance with the 1992 Constitution.

Under individual liberties of the recommendations in the report, the Commission recommended the criminal prosecution of Mr. Ernest Akomea alias ‘Double’ for the unauthorised possession of firearms under section 192(1) of the Criminal Offences Act.

The Commission again recommended the criminal prosecution for the offence of assault, to wit, the slapping of Mr. Samuel George by Mohammed Sulemana.

The Commission further recommended the immediate removal of DSP Samuel Kojo Azugu from command responsibility at the Ministry of National Security, given his failure to appropriately command and control the Special Weapon And Tactical Unit (SWAT) team of which he had charge during the operation at the La Bawaleshie school polling station.

The Commission added that Mr. Bryan Acheampong be reprimanded for his ultimate responsibility as Minister in authorising an operation of that character on a day of an election in a built up area.
