Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama, has expressed concern about the culture of impunity that has been on the rise since President Akufo-Addo, took office.

He said even before becoming President, Nana Akufo-Addo engaged in tendencies that deliberately raised the political temperature.

Addressing the Chiefs and people of Nkrankwanta as part of his three-day tour of the Bono Region, Mr. Mahama noted that the culture of impunity being glorified by the Akufo-Addo administration has resulted in creating fear and panic among the people.

He recounted some of the violent acts perpetuated by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) vigilante group as the attack on a national security officer in Kumasi and the subsequent vandalism perpetrated on a court of law in Kumasi and setting suspects free.

Mr. Mahama, also recalled the violence and intimidation unleashed by pro-government vigilante groups on NDC supporters during the Ayawaso-West-Wuogon by-election and recently the attack on some NDC supporters at Nkrankwanta during the nationwide voter’s registration exercise which has left one of the victims paralyzed.

General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, also condemned the culture of impunity, adding the next NDC government will implement programmes and policies geared towards modern policing methods.
