Today on News paper review on TV3, with Member of Parliament for Nyiaeso constituency, Stephen Amoah has responded to the killing of a 16 year old child at Aboabo in the Ashanti Region when Muslims were were jubilating after the Eid prayers.
"One unfortunate incident happened in Ashanti Region, Aboabo where people got happy engaged shooting and 16 year old got killed. It raises about guns perhaps in wrong hands and people not properly being very consious even though they have been by National Chief Imam and the President, how to celebrate moderation. How do you take it" Stephen Amoah was asked.
"We should be able to manage this antisocial behavior and redefine our security approach and technique. If you look at the developed countries such as UK, United States and others, you will realize that, these things are extremely rampant, almost every hour someone is shooting or stabbing someone. These killings in Ghana are even small and manageable as developing countries because it doesn't happen everyday." Stephen Amoah Responded.
"One thing we failed to do as a country not a government is, we are finding it difficult to always position ourselves to meet the dynamic nature of our society" He said
"I've never seen any of this in Ghana here, that a religious that were celebrating God and someone will say, I'm celebrating with a gun. It should give us enough signal as a country to know that things are changing so we have to also change our ways of doing things" Stephen Amoah added.
"When it comes to managing security, we are doing very well. The youth have access to foreign news, incidence and activities and for that matter, some are going to that direction. So what do we do as a State?" Stephen Amoah asked
