A Member of Parliament has ‘hit hard’ on President Nana Addo on the Ejura Unrest.

Following the recent clash between the security service, and the residents of Ejura; over the death the youth activist- Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed; the Member of Parliament for Tamale North constituency, Honourable Alhassan Suhuyini has also condemned the acts. 

Speaking in an interview on Citi News, Honourable Alhassan Suhuyini said: “we have taken too many things for granted in this country. I was scandalized. Just as I heard the President referred to the number of people who died from the elections as few deaths. I thought to myself how insensitive can he be because of power. We saw the military open fire at people and killing them in the process, only because they decided to take part in a democratic process”.

Honourable Suhuyini explained further that; we have people demanding, that the country be fixed for a better Ghana, and one person is mysteriously killed. “The sad part of it all is that, this is happening under a so-called human rights champion. One of his claims to fame is that he engaged in more demonstrations than any other political figure in the country. Isn’t it such ironic that under his watch, a mere demonstration led to the loss of lives because the government will not permit it”, he asked.

According to him, “Out of frustration, there is an eruption, and the best approach is for live bullets to be fired at young men who are mostly unarmed. Let us not quickly forget about the Arab spring. We must be careful as a country not to try the patience of the majority of the people”.

On 29th June 2021, the youths of Ejura, a community in the Ashanti Region, had a clash with some military men who were deployed to the region to maintain peace and order, after the youths clashed with the police a day earlier…resulting in the death of one social activist Ibrahim ‘Kaaka’ Mohammed.
