The Parliamentary Service has responded to the letter from the Criminals Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service (GPS) on the invitation of the Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Hon. Alhaji Inusah Fuseini.
Days after the 2020 presidential results was declared by the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Mrs. Jean Mensah, many seemed not to be well satisfied with the credibility of the results declared, and as such used various mediums to register their displeasure. Hon. Inusah Fuseini is one of the people who are not pleased with the manner in which the results of the 2020 election were collated.
In registering his displeasure, he ended up making some comments that can be regarded treasonable. He advised the leader and Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, H. E. John Dramani Mahama, to form a parallel government alongside that of President Akufo-Addo, who has been declared the president elect for the Republic of Ghana.

According to the ranking member for Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee, Former President Mahama has been heavily cheated and is the person clearly chosen by the people during the election. Considering the nature of his comment and the danger it poses to the peace enjoyed in the nation, the CID division of the Ghana Police Service invited him through the Speaker of Parliament, requesting his presence in Room 2 in the second floor of the CID headquarters in Thursday December 24, 2020 at 10:00 am.
“It would be appreciated if you could release the aforementioned MP to report to the Director of Operations CID at the CID Headquarters, Second floor, Room 2 on Thursday, 24 December 2020 at 1000 hours to assist with investigations,” the letter stated.
Responding to the letter, the Parliamentary Service simply asked the Honorable member to make himself available at the aforementioned time at the CID headquarters in Accra. “Mr Speaker, having regard to the limitations of Articles 117 and 118 of the 1992 Constitution of the Republic, and noting the fact that the House is currently adjourned sine die has asked that you make yourself available for the interaction with the Ghana Police on Thursday, 24 December 2020 at 10am at the CID Headquarters, Second floor, Room 2”.
In a related development, eleven Members of Parliament in the Minority Caucus have been dragged to court by the State, represented by the Ghana Police Service, for embarking on a walk to the Electoral Commission office, contrary to Act 419 of the 1994 Public Order Act.
Responding to this line of action by the Ghana Police Service, the Member of Parliament for Ningo Prapram Constituency, Hon. Sam George Nartey reveled the disappointment of many Minority MPs over the exclusion of their names in the writt, despite their keen participation. He made this know in a Facebook post and further asked the Ghana Police Service to visit his profile and get the full names of all those who took part in the walk and add their names accordingly.
