Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu has called ‘hypocritical’ a motion filed by some National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament to probe the death of some six persons who lost their lives during the 2020 general elections.
The MPs; Haruna Iddrisu, Muntaka Mubarak, Mahama Ayariga, Alhassan Suhuyini, and James Agalga want the scope of the probe to factor in inappropriate interferences by state security in the elections and violence against citizens, leading to the loss of lives.
Reacting to it on Citi News, the majority leader indicated that all elections in the country have experienced some sort of violence therefore it there was any need for probe then we must go back to the 1992 elections.
“What I don’t like about this is the hypocrisy being displayed. People have died in previous elections. So why haven’t they mentioned it anywhere? So I’m saying to us that if you have to do this, then maybe the time has come for us to open up”, he said.
