We Will Arrest Ya-Na's Killers ? E.T. Mensah

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has promised the chiefs and people of Dagbon that they would arrest the killers of Ya-Na Yakubu Andani should the NDC be voted to power come 2005.

Speaking after a five hours walk organised by the Ayawaso East Constituency branch executives of the NDC in Accra over the weekend. Hon. Enoch Teye Mensah, the NDC Member of Parliament for Ningo/Prampram in the Greater Accra region said the NDC would arrest the killers of the Ya-Na within six weeks of the day the party assumes office in 2005.


According to him, the ruling NPP has failed to arrest the culprits of the heinous crime committed against the people of Dagbon because the NPP allegedly had a hand in the crime. They have refused to bring to book the perpetrators of the crime committed against humanity at Dagbon, he said, giving the assurance that the NDC would not relent in its efforts to arrest prosecute the killers of Ya-Na. Among other things, he called on the supporters to endeavour to turn out in their numbers to register to enable them vote in the general elections to unseat the NPP to bring back ?Sankofa? NDC.

Taking part in the walk that started at Nima-Dunia Cinema through New Town to Pig Farm all the way to Accra Girls School and back to Nima roundabout were Prof. Mills, the party?s flagbearer, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, the flagbearer?s campaign manager, Hon Dr Mustapha Mohammed, the MP for Ayawaso East, Hon E.T. Mensah, Hon Edith Haziel, the MP for Evalue-Gwira and Mr. Joshua Alabi, the Greater Accra Regional Chairman.
