Solomon Nkansah Indicts Nana Over Vigilante Group Attacks
The National Communication Director of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Solomon Nkansah, has blamed President Nana Akufo-Addo for the rampant attacks by vigilante groups on innocent people across the country.
He claimed that virtually all the attacks which have been recorded in the country recently, were committed by known New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante groups.
According to Nkansah, President Akufo-Addo’s silence over the condemnable attacks clearly showed that he was in support of the atrocities, saying the president should be held responsible for the crimes.
“President Nana Akufo-Addo should have openly ordered a ban of all vigilante groups whose members have been causing trouble across the country.
“For the fact that President Akufo-Addo has kept quiet about the disturbing issue, which keeps happening on daily bases, clearly shows that he (president) is in support of the violent attacks”.
Speaking on Nhyira FM, Nkansah admitted that some NDC youth groups also attempted to take the law into their hands after the NDC came to power in 2009, but said the late President Mills stopped them.
“Since the late Prof. Mills was not in support of the vigilante groups’ attacks, he talked against it during an NDC meeting. He even said such vigilante attacks have the potential of retarding national growth so we should avoid it”.
The NDC communicator wondered why the president, who is the commander in chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, has kept mute all this while, and tasked Akufo-Addo to openly condemn and ban the vigilante groups and their illegal activities.
