-Former President Mahama says the Akufo-Addo government has failed deal with the culture of political vigilantism that has characterised it's tenure so far
-He insinuates the inability is due to the encouragement of such behaviour while the party was in opposition.
Former President John Mahama has bemoaned the inability of President Nana Akufo- government’s to deal with the activities of political vigilantes in the country.
There has been a recent upsurge in cases of such nature as groups affiliated to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) engage in attacks of institutions and personalities with little or no provocation.
Though President Akufo-Addo has on many occasions condemned such acts and admonished the police to arrest and prosecute perpetrators without fear or favour, nothing much has been done and the culture seems to be growing.
Indeed, some reports suggest that there have been 19 separate incidents of violence caused by the NPP's affiliates since the party came back to power.
Sharing his thought on the situation, former President Mahama insinuated that "political 'vigilantism' is spiralling out of control and government doesn't appear to be able to deal with the situation" because they had encouraged it while in opposition.
"And the tragedy is that most of our moral society have become passive spectators”, he lamented on Facebook.
