The ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has formally written to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) over the need to disband party vigilantism in the country.
The party is, thus, calling for a first meeting to discuss the issues.
The invitation has been necessitated not only by the President’s call during the 2019 State of the Nation’s Address but also, by the legitimate concerns expressed by Ghanaians about the menace.
The General Secretary of the NPP, Mr John Boadu during his testimony at the Emile Short Commission of Inquiry stated that his party had made a move in the process.
“Since the President made this call, our national chairman, Hon. Freddie Blay has been engaging in telephone conversations with the NDC over the subject,” he stated.
In a letter signed by Mr Boadu and addressed to the chairman of the NDC, Mr Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, the NPP stated that “we think that the time is now right for the parties to hold this crucial meeting, which the whole nation has been looking forward to,” they noted.
Mr Boadu, confirming the submission of the letter to the NDC in an interview with Adom News, Tuesday stated that they hope to rebuild trust with the process.
