A retired military officer, Colonel (Rtd) Festus Aboagye, has advised President Akufo-Addo to keep quiet about vigilantism in Ghana.
According to a report by 3news.com, he explained that the president’s call for end to vigilantism at the State of the Nation Address, was enough.
For that reason, he went on, the rest of the process should be taken care of by the two main political parties in Ghana.
Col (Rtd) Aboagye, who was formerly the commander of West African multilateral armed forces, ECOMOG, added that the president’s decision to exchange words with the chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), was wrong.
“He has initiated the discourse, more or less, he has obliged the chairpersons of those two political parties to talk. He should leave it at that,” Col (Rtd) Aboagye said.
On Thursday, February 21, 2019, the president, during the SONA, called on leadership of his party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP), to invite its opposite number in the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for dialogue on how to disband their respective militias.
He however added that further warned “if voluntary disbandment by the parties is not feasible, then I will initiate a legislation on the matter”.
