    Akufo-Addo GLORIFYING culture of Impunity – Mahama

    The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani
    Mahama, has expressed concern about the culture of impunity that has been on the rise
    since the assumption of office of President Akufo Addo.

    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 of impunity of the pro-Akufo-Addo government
    vigilante groups as the attack on a national security officer in Kumasi as well as the
    subsequent vandalism perpetrated on a court of law in Kumasi and setting suspects free.

    He also recalled the violence and intimidation unleashed by pro-government vigilante
    groups on NDC supporters during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.

    “But, in all these, those who were discovered to have committed the offences are still
    walking free, with the government failing to act, especially on the report of the Emile Short
    Commission that investigated the violence at the Ayawaso West Wuogon”, Mr Mahama
    said.

    He also condemned the attack on some NDC supporters at Nkrankwanta during the
    nationwide voter registration exercise by the Electoral Commission, which has left one of
    the victims paralysed.

    Mr Mahama said the NPP on the watch of President Akufo-Addo has proven that they
    cannot unite Ghanaians and it is therefore imperative that they are voted out in the
    December 7, 2020 general elections.

    He also promised to streamline and transform recruitment into police service and do away
    with the current situation where people are secretly recruited into the police service.
    For his part, the General Secretary of the NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, also condemned.

    The culture of impunity, adding the next NDC government will implement programmes and
    policies geared towards modern policing methods.
