1MP 1Policeman:Tight Security Imposed On MP'S Due To The Recent Death Of An MP, See Details

The recent deaths of many MP'S in Ghana nowadays is the tragic trending news all over the country as most lives of MP'S have been taking by various unknown assailants causing fear and panic as elections approaches.

These officers are to continue duty on protecting their assigned MP'S till the end of this year, the government said on Tuesday.

The officers will operate under the parliamentary protection unit,said by the country's interior minister Ambrose Dery.

He told members of the parliamentary press Corp after an in-camera session with the MP'S that under the new arrangements every MP will be entitled to a police officer as a bodyguard.

75 MP'S who are serving as Ministers and Deputy Minister's under the current government have their guards at their various homes and work.

Mr Dery further stated briefing the press that, plans are written down to provide additional 800 more police guards to protect homes of the MP'S.

Due to the retooling of more security agencies by president Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo Addo,the country now has more security agencies and security personnel available,so we proposed that we will provide 200 additional police officers to the parliamentary protection unit to help in duty as bodyguards to protect the positional MP'S before the end of this year he said.

So Mr Dery said for them to attain their goal they need to add up 800 security officers to be able to provide a stable stationary work for the various MP'S day and night.

Following the killing of the Mfatseman MP Ekow kwansah Hayford,the Minister was summoned by the house.

Mr Hayford Ekow kwansah was shot dead on Friday by some unknown assailants at the Abeadze Dominase-Abeadze Duase off Mankessim road as the MP and some executives of the NPP were returning from a campaign trip.

Will this help protect and stop the killings of various politicians or you think more or other means should be subjected to that?
