The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to publish in full, the report of the Emile Short Commission of Enquiry.

The Commission was set up by the President to investigate the circumstances surrounding the violence that broke out during the bye-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency on January 31.

An official statement signed by Mr Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communication Officer and copied to the Ghana News Agency said the Short Commission presented its report to the President on March 15, this year and uptil now the report had not been made public.

“In spite of the fact that the NDC boycotted the proceedings of the Commission, we believe that the Ayawaso West Wuogon issue is a matter of intense national and international interest, and that the people of Ghana deserve to know the findings and recommendation of the Commission”.

It said what made the demand imperative was the fact that till date, the perpetrators of the violence at the bye-election who were captured live on videos, were still free and walking around.
“What is even more disturbing is that we still do not know the status of the police investigation into the said matter, despite assurances to the country.

“Under the circumstances, we call on the President to cause the publication of the full report of the Emile Short Commission immediately.”
