Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has sworn in the three-member committee set to investigate the Ayawaso West Wuogon violence.

Speaking at the swearing-in ceremony at the Jubilee House on Friday, Dr Bawumia said no one can "question the integrity of the people here constituting the Commission". 

According to him, "all the necessary logistic arrangement will be provided to ensure that your work proceeds impartially.”

He said: “As you’re all aware, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo decided that in the public interest, this Commission of Inquiry be established so that they will undertake a true, faithful and impartial enquiry into the incident that occurred during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election. In doing this, the President had to look for people with impeccable integrity and this is the reason the membership of the Commission is as it is" he added. 

Meanwhile, the commission has a month to present its report. 

Government on Thursday set up a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the violence which occurred during the by-election in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency on January 31, 2019.

The three-member commission has Mr Justice Emile Short as Chairman, with Professor Henrietta Mensah-Bonsu and Mr Patrick K. Acheampong as members.
