The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has finally signed the comprehensive roadmap designed by the National Peace Council to deal with political vigilantism in the country.
In February this year, the party refused to sign the document arguing that out of the 22 recommendations to tackle the menace, only 4 has a direct bearing on political parties. They claimed that 18 of the recommendations will require the consent of Civil Society Organizations, the EC, and some government agencies who were not present at the event.
NDC’s National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo who led the delegation was accompanied by the General Secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, to sign the document in the presence of the Chairman of the National Peace Council and other executives.
The political vigilantism dialogue was instituted by the National Peace Council following the violence that marred the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency by-election in 2019.
