The Member of Parliament (MP) for the Tamale North Constituency, Alhassan Suhuyini, is wondering why President Akufo-Addo has appointed so many Ministers and appointees in charge of security yet there is the upsurge of murder cases in the country.

According to him, "we have Interior Minister, Defence Minister, National Security Advisor, Minister of State in Charge of National Security and so on yet the country's image is being tarnished with embarrassing headlines within a short period with murder cases.

Mr Suhuyini's was reacting to the murder of Ahmed Suale; an investigative journalist and a partner of Anas Aremeyaw Anas.

Speaking on Joynews’ Newsfile program, Saturday, the MP for Tamale North said “never has Ghana been hit with very disgraceful and embarrassing headlines within such a short period of time; 2 years, international headlines, embarrassing international headlines, never before. You recall the speech theft by our president, it gave us international headlines we were all not proud of, the Australian Commonwealth games, embarrassing, Oslo Norway Chancery, international headlines that were not palatable and then the number 12 expose which has led to this matter”.

“How long will we continue to tolerate this international embarrassment? Can’t something be done about these negative headlines we are attracting? What are the long term consequences on the image of Ghana if we continue on this line?” he quizzed.

He further bemoaned the insecurity in the country and added: “for me, I am particularly disappointed in the government and in our security agencies considering the expectations that many people had; given the promises that were made to them before our last elections. I’m saying so because security has always been a concern to us and so you cannot compartmentalize a discussion of it and blame one regime but if an expectation is given; that we know the situation and so when we come we’ll do something better about it and what you get is what we currently have, then it is fair to be disappointed…..to say I’m disappointed is because I was promised as a Ghanaian”.
