Short Commission petitioned to invite Mahama

13

A private Ghanaian citizen by name Dawda Eric has petitioned the Commission of Inquiry that is probing the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election to invite former president John Mahama as a witness.

Mr Dawda Eric argues that Mr Mahama, who recently screened some videos to the diplomatic corps at a hotel in Peduase concerning the violence that marred the Thursday, 31 January 2019 by-election, will be of help in unravelling the situation since he has useful evidence in his possession.

“Sir, ex-president Mahama, on the 13th day of February gathered some foreign diplomats and made an audiovisual presentation to them by way of cataloguing what characterised the just-ended by-election. In his presentation, he adduced video evidence to support his claim and pointed out to these diplomats that those who were deployed that very day were actually not security men but members believed to associated with the Invincible Forces (militia group).

“He further corroborated his evidence with a video of men dressed in a security uniform who were dancing at a funeral ground and alleged that those were the people who were deployed on the Election Day to unleash violence on innocent Ghanaians,” Mr Dawda Eric write in his petition to the Justice Emile Short-led Commission.

A PETITION FOR THE INVITATION OF EX-PRESIDENT MAHAMA TO GIVE HIS TESTIMONY WITH REGARD TO HIS PUBLIC COMMENTARY ON THE AWW BY- ELECTION INCIDENT

I am a Ghanaian citizen who lives in Sefwi Wiawso. The work of the commission of inquiry is of an utmost importance in unraveling the mysteries that surrounded the just-ended by-election at Ayawaso West Wuogon. As a citizen of the Republic of Ghana, it is my duty to assist the commission in any other form to get to the core of this disturbing issue which is currently before this commission pursuant to article 278 of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana.

Sir, ex-President Mahama on the 13th day of February gathered some foreign diplomats and made an audiovisual presentation to them by way of cataloguing what characterised the just-ended by-election. In his presentation, he adduced video evidence to support his claim and pointed out to these diplomats that those who were deployed that very day were actually not security men but members believed to associated with the Invincible Forces (militia group). He further corroborated his evidence with a video of men dressed in a security uniform who were dancing at a funeral ground and alleged that those were the people who were deployed on the Election Day to unleash violence on innocent Ghanaians.

His public commentary, by extension, makes ex-president Mahama an interested party who should be invited before the Commission to submit same evidence he presented to the diplomats before the Commission.

I have in my possession one of his interviews on the AWW by-election with Citi TV after his engagement with the foreign diplomats and I am willing to adduce same to the commission when the need arises.

I am verily aware and believe same to be truth that his invitation would help the Commission to get to the logical conclusion of the subject matter once and for all.

Thank You

Yours in service to God and country

Dawda Eric
