THE MINISTER for Interior, William Kwasi Aboah, may appear before Parliament to brief the House on recent violent conflicts and disturbances in some parts of the country.
Minority Spokesman on Defence and Interior, William Ofori Boafo, who is also the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for Akropong, yesterday urged the house to invite the minister to appear before the legislature to explain why there had been violence in many areas in the country.
Majority Leader Cletus Avorka, who is also the NDC MP for Zebilla, supported William Boafo's call and indicated that the Business Committee would meet today to discuss the issue and determine whether or not to invite Mr Aboah to appear before the house at the appropriate time.
The country has, within a period of two weeks, witnessed a number of conflicts in Nankpanduri and Tamale in the Northern Region, Ekumfi Narkwa in the Central Region, Hohoe and Ho in the Volta Region, Talensi in the Upper East Region and Obuasi in the Ashanti Region, among others.
Mr Boafo explained that Members of Parliament represented the people and therefore needed to be briefed on the issue as it posed security threats, especially during this electioneering period.
