The people of Bawku deserve to live in peace – Alan

Independent Presidential Candidate, Alan Kyerematen, has admonished the military personnel who have been sent to Bawku to help provide security and ensure that the people live in peace.

He asked them to continue to act professionally to ensure that no human life is wasted while protecting their lives.

In a statement, he said “Like many Ghanaians, the unfortunate killing of three men by the soldiers from the Ghana Armed Forces in Bawku, as confirmed by the military in a press release dated 20th January, 2024 that it was an action taken to neutralise some assailants, troubled my heart greatly. The innocent, hardworking, and kind-hearted people of Bawku deserve to live in peace and harmony. Living in fear and a constant sense of insecurity is the worst thing that can happen to every human being.

“I, therefore, wish to humbly admonish the respected military personnel who have been posted to Bawku to help provide security, and ensure that the good people of Bawku live in peace, to continue to act professionally to indeed ensure that no human life is wasted while protecting their lives. Our ultimate duty to God and country is to protect the lives of the people there.

“Let us not cease to be mindful that every human life is as precious and priceless as ours. Let’s therefore learn to be each other’s keeper and continue to work towards a lasting peace in the Bawku area and beyond. We are one people from different backgrounds. We are Ghanaians. We are peace-loving people. Let’s give peace a chance in BAWKU. God bless our Homeland Ghana to rise again!”

Former President John Dramani Mahama also called for close collaboration between the military and the Police in providing security at Bawku.

Mr Mahama said he was saddened and disturbed by recent shootings in the Bawku municipality and the killing of three men.

In a statement, the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said “While I recognise that our security services face the difficult task of securing peace in the Bawku area, the military must work hand in hand with the police to provide safety and security in the Bawku municipality and across the nation.

“As a former Commander in Chief of the Armed Forces, I urge the military personnel to remember their duty to protect the people and uphold the peace.

“My thoughts and prayers are with the families of the victims during this difficult time, even as I call upon the people of Bawku to endeavour to promote and consolidate peace to enable the positive development of the municipality of Bawku. Let us all work together to ensure justice is served and peace is restored in Bawku.”
