The Minority in Parliament led by Hon. Haruna Iddrisu has described the vigilantism bill currently before the House as ”lack of conceptual clarity.”
According to the Minority, the concept of the bill is not clear on how to solve the issue of vigilantism in the country.
He called for stakeholders’ input into the bill to craft a veritable and robust legal framework to deal with the canker.
“The bill as presently presented appears to lack conceptual clarity, what are we dealing with?” What is the problem are we dealing with the symptoms but not the disease,” they said Thursday while addressing a stakeholder conference on the bill in Parliament.
The vigilantism and other related offences bill was laid before Parliament in April for consideration and approval by the House.
The purpose of the Bill is to disband political party vigilante groups and forbid acts of such nature in the country, following the continuous violence that has characterized the country’s by-elections.
