“Being proactive is another way of solving a problem”

Educate Africa Institute is mourning with the family of the immediate past member of Parliament for Mfatseman, Hon. Ekow Quansah Hayford who was shot dead recently in the central region.

Throwing more lights on Ghana’s security issues, we have the right to say that, successive governments have really failed the country. It look as if our leaders are careless when it comes to proper governance. 

There has been  number of such painful and untimely deaths in Ghana and nothing has been done to curb the bizarre situation confronting Ghana. I heard the speaker of parliament talking about how to protect the lives of the MPs but not all Ghanaians. That’s interesting!

These are some painful events that occurred under the watch of our national security.  

1. Adam Mahama was the victim of mob justice by a group of residents in a town in the Upper Denkyira West District of the Central Region. He was lynched to death and his body burnt by residents who claim he was mistaken for a suspected armed robber. Since 2017, police are still investigating despite the evidence on tape.


2 . On the 9 February 2016, J.B Danquah Adu was stabbed to dead in the early hours of the morning.

3. Josephine Asante, the Marketing and Public Affairs Manager of the Ghana Ports and Harbours Authority (GPHA), was shot to death by unknown assailants at dawn.

4. Ahmed Hussein-Suale was shot dead at Madina Accra.

5. Two police officers were shot dead at Kasoa.

6. Senior lecturer of Law at the University of Ghana, Prof Emmanuel Yaw Benneh was murdered at his home in Accra.

7. The 28-year-old Silas Wulochamey met his untimely death on July 3 when he was stabbed in the back by some men at Banda Kabrono during the voter registration exercise etc.

Some of the above cases were filmed with phone camera but still our security agencies are doing investigations especially major Mahama. This depicts the poor and outmoded way of policing. We have national security doing very little but enjoying tax payers money.

The way forward;

1. We need to utilize the modern (technological) way of security.

2. Let’s desist from politicizing our security agencies interns of recruitment. The protocol system must seize.

3. Our leaders must think of reducing unemployment rate by creating jobs for the unemployed. 

Lastly, I would like to send our condolences to all families and friends of our late MP and also advise our electoral commission to ensure free and fair elections.

I am a concern citizen of Ghana. Ghana must win.
