President Nana Akufo-Addo has assured MPs of upgraded measures which will ensure their safety and comfort as they represent the citizenry.
This follows the gruesome murder of the Mfantseman MP, Ekow Quansah Hayford.
Mr Quansah Hayford was shot by armed robbers on the Abeadze Dominase – Abeadze Duadzi – Mankessim Road on his return from a campaign trip in the early hours of Friday, October 9, 2020.
In a letter of condolence to Parliament, the President noted that measures are in place to bring to book the individuals involved in the crime.
“I want to assure Mr. Speaker and all the members of the House that every effort will be made by law enforcement agencies to apprehend quickly the perpetrators of this heinous crime.
“And I want to reassure you further that government will continue to take and intensify all appropriate measures to guarantee the safety of members and citizens of our country as we all go about our lawful duties, especially during this period of democratic accountability,” he writes.
Meanwhile, Speaker of Parliament, Professor Aaron Mike Oquaye, has summoned the Interior Minister, Ambrose Dery to appear before the House on Tuesday, to brief Members of Parliament on the killing of Mfantseman MP.
