The statement said it is a blatant disregard for the principles of transparency and accountability that the President swore to uphold.

It added that though the NDC boycotted proceedings of the Commission, it believes the Ayawaso West Wuogon issue is a matter of national and international concern and that the people of Ghana deserve to know the findings and recommendation of the Commission.

The party is worried that till date, the perpetrators of the violence captured on video, have still not been brought to book.
