Former President John Dramani Mahama has called for probe into the unfortunate incident of military invasion and Tema West MP, Carlos Ahenkorah’s snatching of ballot in Parliament this morning.
Describing the incidents as worrying and needless, Mahama called for swift action to be taken.
“The attempt to snatch ballot papers by the MP-elect for Tema West and the invasion of the Chamber by armed military personnel are images one had never expected to see in our 4th Republican Parliament. The recent use of the military in civil democratic processes has become a major worry and gives the impression that this administration is continually seeking to resurrect the exorcised ghosts of our military past. Parliament must conduct an investigation into the two incidents and exact appropriate sanctions,” he wrote on Facebook.
