Minister for Parliamentary Affairs, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, has called on the country’s Law Enforcement Agencies to beef up security in areas identified as flashpoints across the country ahead of the December Elections.

He was speaking in Accra at a forum organised by the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs for Security Agencies and Political Parties on the 2020 elections and its implications for peace and security in Ghana.

Mr Kyei Mensah Bonsu said reported cases of armed robberies, the murder of the Mfansteman MP, the threat posed by the Secessionist Groups in the Volta Region are ample evidence for the security agencies to up their game.

He said the Police with assistance from other security agencies must ensure constant monitoring of these hotspots as the campaign heats up.

The Ranking Member on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini, said the December elections is unprecedented in the history of Ghana because it is the first time a former President is contesting a sitting President.

“And while the sitting President will not want to go down as a one-term President, the former President will also not want to go down as a continuous loser, hence the high stakes of the election. Therefore the conduct of security officers is key in ensuring transparent, fair, free, peaceful, and credible elections and violence-free elections.”
