Victims of the Ayawaso Wuogon By-election received some food items including cash donation from National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the week.

The donation was part of the 4th anniversary since the by-election incidence occurred in 2019.

Addressing the victims at their various homes, the General Secretary of the NDC, Hon. Fifi Fiavi Kwetey assured them of getting justice when the NDC comes to power. This is because the ruling NPP led by President Akufo-Addo is not prepared to give justice.

He posited that it was only under the hoverning NPP that democracy becomes the ground to spill the blood of innocent citizens for power.

He called on Ghanaians to rally behind the NDC to kick out the inept and corrupt NPP out of power; adding that “that will be the only way the country can be restored its usual glory”.

On her part, Hon. Sherry Ayittey commended the victims for their bold decision to defend Ghana’s democracy from the attack by the fiendish Nana Akufo-Addo led NPP administration.

She also reiterated that they would get justice when the NDC comes back to power where the perpetrators would be brought to book.

Both victims, Ishahak Yaro and Alhassan Mohammed amongst others commended the party and the former President John Dramani Mahama for their continual support.

According to them, they remain grateful for the numerous support the NDC and John Mahama have giving them.

The victims continue to pray that the Emile Short Commission of Inquiry report is followed impartially. They indicated the Commission has estab­lished the facts leading to the events and the associated violence that occurred during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.

The Commission took testi­monies of principal witnesses in the matter including the Member of Parliament for Ningo Pram­pram, Sam George; the Com­mander of the National Security SWAT Team, Deputy Superinten­dent of Police, Samuel Azugu and the then NDC parliamentary can­didate for the area, Mr. Delali Kwasi Brempong.

The Commission further gathered testimonies from over 20 other witnesses and persons of interest in the area who were witnesses for a three-week period.

The Commission after its mandate presented its report to President Akufo-Addo.

The Emile Short Com­mission recommended among other things that the victims of the violence should be paid compen­sation for the harm they suffered.
