Accra, Feb. 12, GNA –
The Ghana Academy of Muslim Professionals (GAMP) has said it was happy that a
Commission of Enquiry has been set up to investigate the violence during the
recent Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary by-election.
A statement signed by Mr Abdul-Wahab Abubakar, the General Secretary of the GAMP, and copied to the Ghana News Agency on Tuesday, expressed the hope that the Commission would be impartial in discharging its duties to ensure that the outcome of the enquiry puts an end to vigilantism in the country.
“As a concerned religious body interested in peace and development of the country, the GAMP deems it appropriate to add its voice to the numerous voices of individuals and civil society organisations to condemn the violence in no uncertain terms,” it said.
The statement said Ghana, over the years, had gained international recognition on account of her democratic credentials and that; “we as a nation must not engage in any activities that could undermine this enviable recognition.”
