If National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer John Dramani Mahama wins the 2024 polls, Techiman South people may expect a prompt probe into the violence that occurred during the 2020 election.
Two people lost their lives and six others were injured in a shooting incident that occurred in the constituency during the 2020 elections.
As part of his “Building the Ghana We Want” trip, Mahama blasted the Akufo-Addo and Bawumia administration for allegedly not doing more to hold those liable for the fatalities that occurred during the election. This criticism came during his visit of the Bono East Region.
He promised that the NDC would launch a comprehensive inquiry and see to it that everyone implicated was prosecuted if they were to win the next elections.
John Mahama also gave the people confidence that the NDC will put the interests of all victims and their families first in cases like these if they were to win power.
“We all know what happened here in 2020 which led to three of our people dying. When you are elected as president of a nation, you must be president for all. Since the incident happened here, the president and his appointees have failed to apologize for the incident.
“When a similar incident happened in Ejura, there was a commission of enquiry and compensation has already been paid to people but Techiman has been ignored. That is why when I am elected as president, I will investigate what happened here and ensure that those found culpable are punished and the right thing is done.”
