Former president, John Mahama, has been cautioned to refrain from verbal attacks with regard to vigilantism in Ghana.
In a report by mynewsgh.com, a former presidential aspirant, Akwasi Addai Odike, stated that the former president has no moral right to air his views on the subject.
In Odike’s opinion, Mahama did little to curtail the spread of vigilantism during his tenure.
He therefore should be the last person to speak on the matter, Odike added.
Speaking on Nhyira FM, he went on to say that Mahama is more guilty than any other leader and it is therefore in his best interest to remain quiet.
The founder and leader of the United Front Party (UFP) suggested that John Mahama would have been on a safer side by suggesting measures to curb youth rampages in the country.
The former president, is reported to have indicated in a post on Facebook that “when you sow the wind, you reap a whirlwind!
Political ‘vigilantism’ is spiraling out of control and government doesn’t appear to be able to deal with the situation.
And the tragedy is that most of our moral society have become passive spectators”.
