Former President John Mahama is convinced the Nana Akufo-Addo-led government is reaping the fruits of vigilantism which it sowed while in opposition.

“When you sow the wind, you reap a whirlwind!”,” Mr Mahama wrote on his Facebook account on Sunday.

“Political ‘vigilantism’ is spiraling out of control and government doesn’t appear to be able to deal with the situation,” the former President adds.

The comment by the former President follows a recent incident of violence by NPP youth in the Upper West Region.

The District Chief Executive (DCE) for Sissala West was forced to flee his office after irate NPP youth besieged his workplace late Thursday afternoon.

Last week Thursday’s incident is the second in two days after youth of Karaga in the Northern region locked up the office of the Youth Employment Agency coordinator last Wednesday, renewing concerns about violent attacks and the disregard for the law by groups affiliated to a political party, usually referred to as ‘political vigilante groups’.

The former President laments, “And the tragedy is that most of our moral society have become passive spectators.”
