Financial expert Sydney Casely-Hayford has speak the delivery of state Security for Members of Parliament is totally unnecessary.
He stated that unlike some people such as the President and chiefs of the Electoral Commission, the Economic and Organized Crime Office, the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), among others, the work of parliament does not contain danger that would demand security of lawmakers.
Speaking to the media on Saturday February 13, 2016, he speak of parliament “…The Institution is not an unsafe institution, it’s not an institution that’s creating danger. This is an institution that is producing an impression of civility, not danger.”
Mr Casely-Hayford’s remarks adjusted on the debate over the necessity for security for lawmakers following the killing Tuesday February 9, 2016 of Abuakwa North MP, J.B. Danquah-Adu at his Shaishie home at dawn.
But Mr Casely-Hayford claimed MPs did not need State Security, arguing further that many would need such protectors for reasons other than their protection.
He emphasized, I don’t agree with parliamentarians who say that now they have to have security. Now what they want now…is a fighter man holding a bazooka with another car following them anywhere they go, another car they have to energy, so, which means, they get dual petrol coupons running all over the country, rotating on bells and running around the county saying that this is their safekeeping man. And then they will be sending their safekeeping man…and they will be sending their safety officers all over the way to go and collect bankye (cassava) and plantain and all types of things from different places on the lands, that ‘this is my safety officer I have asked him to come for 4 bunches of bankye (cassava).
