Member of Parliament for Nsawam–Adoagyiri, Frank Anno Dompreh says President Nana Akufo-Addo does not have a position on Togo’s crises neither will he meddle in a sovereign countries internal issues.

He further pointed out that what Ghana can do behind the scene is to diplomatically appeal to the authorities in Togo to follow the rule of law.

And added that the committee has visited the Togolese embassy to show concern and appeal to the President of that country through the embassy to ensure that, they do what they ought to do more especially to avoid death being recorded.

“Leadership should always know that it is people who make them leaders, if there is a strong concern that there is a change in arrangement, it is only fair for leadership to listen”.

We appreciate the geographic proximity of the two Countries and appreciate that we have families in Ghana who have grandparents in Togo and the other way round. But notwithstanding, Togo is an independent republic, there should be respect for the rule of law, he said.

We have had issues like this before in 1992 issues with the Military, we did not hear the Togo administration coming to state their position, I agree that it is a necessary issue to deal with because it has its own ramification for the sub region.
