“Let us make distinction between AWW and Kumasi shooting”---Haruna

Minority Leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Haruna Iddrisu has said a distinction should be made between the violence unleashed at Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election and shooting incident at Kumasi.  

According to the Minority Leader the Ayawaso West Wuogon incident was a state sponsored violence.

“It is not right in any part of the world, when the state with its apparatus which has the right to protect the life and provide security itself unleashed violence, let us not relate that to the Kumasi incident”.

In an interview with members of the press corps just after adjournment of the House, he noted that the shooting incident in Kumasi around the National Democratic Congress (NDC) office was an individual exchange.

He was however quick to point out that the two incident is unjustified, “we need to have a national conversation to improve our national democratic practice”

“We need to do away with vigilantism, how do we do that, you saw what happened at our court and what happened to a Minister in the current administration nothing happened, rule of law does not mean rule of the rule”.

He further pointed out that, we should not reduce rule of the law to, rule of the Majority, rule that is not democratic.
