Kwaku Annan has made a wild allegation against the head of the Ghana Commission for Small Arms and Light weapons. Dating back to the year 2015, the Commission's last report to the president on the number of weapons that finds its way into the country and the number of illegal entry of weapons as well was no longer sent, according to Kwaku Annan. That means that from 2016 till date, the entry of weaponry into country was not reported and that there is no track of the influx of arms into the country.
He further revealed on The Seat show on Monday night, 6th September 2021, that the rampant robbery and gun attacks on people are the result of the failure of the institution to do its work. "If a thorough search is to be conducted on vehicles on our roads, five out of every twenty will contain fire arms. According to my checks, a reliable source tells me that the head of that commission has no appointment letter to be in that office but has worked there for 12 years, and no one seems to question", Kwaku Annan alleged. He called on the presidency, the chief of staff, and the secretary to the president to look into the issue and take the necessary resolutions.
