- The National Youth Organizer of the NDC, George Opare Addo, has hinted of the party's plans to form more vigilante groups
- According to him, the move will be considered if the NPP continues to keep its vigilante groups
- The NDC outdoored its vigilante group, the Hawks, in September 2018
The National Youth Organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), George Opare Addo, has disclosed that the party will soon form new vigilante groups.
According to him, the aim will be to rival the various groups associated with the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Speaking on Citi FM, Addo stated that if NPP are still keeping the vigilante groups they formed prior to the 2016 general elections, then the NDC too will do same.
"If the NPP does not disband the Invisible and Delta forces, then we have no other alternative. We will have to be ready to protect ourselves," he noted.
Explaining his point, he added that it will become a reality if the party deems it necessary to form such groups.
During the regional elections of the NDC in September 2018, the NDC outdoored a vigilante group called the "Hawks" in Kumasi.
Touching on the recent disruption of a meeting organized by the Minister of Monitoring and Evaluation, Dr. Akoto Osei in Tafo-Pankrono, Opare Addo stated that “If senior ministers of state with police protection are running for their dear lives how much more an ordinary man like me", he said.
The NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has reportedly endorsed the emergence of pro-NDC vigilante groups as a “natural response” to the NPP’s refusal to disband its own vigilante groups.
