Rev. Opuni-Frimpong calls on Ghanaians to boycott 2020 elections if vigilante groups are not banned

- Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong has asked Ghanaians to boycott the 2020 elections if vigilante groups still exist

- According to him, Ghana will become chaotic if the groups continue to exist

The former general secretary of the Christian Council of Ghana, Rev. Dr. Kwabena Opuni-Frimpong, has advised Ghanaians to boycott the 2020 elections if vigilante groups are not disbanded.

Peacefmonline.com reports that he said no one should go out and vote if the political parties continue their 'All-die-be-die' and 'Boot-for-Boot' businesses.

Speaking on Okay FM’s 'Ade Akye Abia' programme, he expressed disappointment in the government for tolerating such illegality and feared Ghana will be plunged into chaos if such groups affiliated to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) are not disbanded.

“Ghana is sitting on a time bomb since NDC and NPP are still using vigilante groups, because they are both beneficiaries and therefore using them to their own advantage," he said.

According to him, both parties have given legitimacy to such groups to perpetrate violence during elections.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George, as well as others, were assaulted during the by-elections held at Ayawaso West Wuogon constituency.

The government consequently set up a Commission of Inquiry to investigate the incident and report to the president in a month’s time.
