The Minority leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South,  Mr Haruna  Iddrisu,  has warned that the  National Democratic Congress  (NDC)  will not accept unprofessional conduct and intimidation from the security services ahead of the December 7, 2020, general elections.

Speaking at the same gathering of chiefs, people and members of garage associations in Sunyani  Magazine just before the  NDC  presidential candidate  John Dramani  Mahama announced the suspension of his tour of the Bono Region over concerns about the Electoral Commission’s provisional voters register on Tuesday, September 22,  the Minority  Leader warned that any abuse or misuse of the mandate of the security services will not be accepted by the opposition.

“I’m warning the NPP, as for the intimidation, it must stop and the security agencies—the military and the police—they are nuetral institutions of state and they must behave as such by their mandate.”

Mr Iddrisu said the police and the military, per their mandate, are supposed to be neutral institutions of state and must behave as such.

He noted that the government has embedded members of its vigilante groups in the security services to harass and intimidate people, adding the  NDC  will not accept a repetition of the state-sponsored violence and intimidation that was unleashed during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
