Family of Ishalu Yaro, one of the victims who was shot during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election has expressed their anger at media reports if the GHc 5,000/donation made by the MP Lydia Alhassan.
They have asked the MP to come for her money because they are not interested in her money.
Spokesperson for the family, Inusah Musa told Kwabena Agyapong on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm that, the MP did not inform or communicate with the family she she visited but rather went to the hospital administration to donate the money.
The cost the family has incurred is more than the GHc 5,000 and some personalities including former President Mahama who visited him at the hospital, did not make their donation public.
“The MP did not inform us about the donation. She did not communicate with the family before donating the money and before we realised, the information was in the media. We are not interested in her money. She should come back for her money because the cost we have incurred is more than the GHc 5,000 she donated.”
He also lamented how his brother has been treated after he was shot.
According to him, his brother was shot at a close range and from what they have gathered, it seems the person who shot him had an ill motive.
Inusah Musa also refuted claims that his brother is a gangster or a member of a vigilante group.
Member of Parliament for Ayawaso West Wuogon, Lydia Seyram Alhassan donated GHc5,000 towards the medical care of persons who were injured in the violence that rocked last Thursday’s by-election held in her constituency.
She made the donation when she visited injured persons at the 37 Military Hospital on Wednesday.
“As the MP, it is my first duty to come around and visit those injured,” she said.
