John Dramani Mahama, the presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has urged for fairness and reparation for the victims of the violence during the Ayawaso-West Wuogon by-election, specifically highlighting Isshau Yaro’s plight. Mahama conveyed this during his visit to Yaro’s home on April 2, 2024, expressing concern over Yaro’s current condition and emphasizing the need for accountability from the government. He lamented Yaro’s transformation from a vibrant, hardworking individual to someone incapacitated by the events of Ayawaso-West Wuogon.

“This is Isshau Yaro. He was a very energetic, active, and hardworking young man. Today, because of what happened at Ayawaso West Wuogon, he’s become invalid; he’s unable to do the work he used to do. I want Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr Bawumia to see this young man sitting here and how his life has been destroyed because of the hooliganism that took place in Ayawaso West Wuogon,” he stated.

 “We always talk about Ayawaso West Wuogon and the casualties. It looks far away because people’s relatives were not affected, but this is one of the cases from Ayawaso West Wuogon”

Mahama criticized the lack of justice for Yaro and others affected, citing the failure of the government to implement the recommendations of the commission of enquiry, including adequate compensation for Yaro. He pledged that if the NDC assumes office in 2025, they would recognize Yaro as a hero and ensure he receives the necessary compensation to rebuild his life.
