Due To His Relationship With The Army, I Wish He Hasn't Accepted That Position - Dr. Ishmael Norman

The President and CEO of the Institute for Security, Disaster and Emergency Studies, Dr. Ishmael Norman, has said that due to the relationship Professor Vladimir Antwi Danso has with the Ghana Army, he wished he hadn't accepted the position from the president to probe the killings that happened at Ejura.

Dr. Norman made this statement on 'THE KEYPOINTS' program on TV3 today, 3rd July 2021, when he gave his opinion on the committee set up to probe the killings that happened at Ejura.

According to Dr. Norman, the issue he has with the committee set up to probe the killings at Ejura is actually with one individual. He said that he respects Professor Vladimir Antwi Danso very much. He has worked with him, and there are continuing collaborations going on with him, but he thinks his objectivity will be questioned due to his relationship with the army. 

"Because he knows how the military works because he is embedded in the military organization for long, although he is a good man, due to his relationship with the army, I wish he hadn't accepted the position. He will become an interested party in some way, but he didn't appoint himself so, when you have allowed to serve your country no matter the hindrances on you, you have to do the job." He said

He added that his only worry is how people will perceive Professor Vladimir Antwi Danso's involvement, given his entrenched involvement in the Ghana military. He said that Vladimir Antwi Danso, has trained so many officers over the years so, objectivity will be hard for him, and he has to remind himself that he has to be objective.
