President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reinstated the Upper West Regional Minister, Alhassan Suleman.

Mr Suleman was suspended following an attack on the Upper West Regional Office of the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) in Wa on January 31, 2018.

A statement signed by the Director of Communications at the Jubilee House, Mr Eugene Arhin, said the reinstatement follows the completion of police investigations into the attack.

“President Akufo-Addo’s decision is informed by police investigations, for which a report dated 22nd February, 2018, was submitted to the President, after which a thorough assessment of the report was undertaken,” the statement said.

Meanwhile, nine persons suspected to have been responsible for the attack are standing trial at a Wa Circuit Court.
