The Ghana Academy of Muslim Professionals ( GAMP ) has noted with grave concern the violence witnessed in the recent by-election held at Bawaleshie on January 31, 2019.
As a concern religious body interested in peace and development in the country, the GAMP deems it appropriate to add its voice to the numerous voices of individuals and Civil Society Organisations to condemn in no uncertain terms the violence meted out on innocent citizens.
Ghana had over the years gained international recognition on account of her democratic credentials, and we as a nation must not engage in any activities that could undermine this enviable recognition. The GAMP is happy that a Commission of enquiry has been set up to investigate this unfortunate incidence. We are hopeful that the Commission will be impartial in discharging its duties and would ensure that the outcome of the enquiry puts an end to vigilantism in the country.
