The former Ashanti Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joseph Yamin has for the first time broken his silence on the actual role he plays in NDC vigilante group, The Hawks.
He revealed that the group officially exists in the NDC structure and would not be disbanded “today or tomorrow”.
This comes after President Akufo-Addo called on the leadership of the two major parties (NPP and NDC) to dialogue on disbanding their various vigilante groups.
According to him, there is no plan to disband the NDC Hawks as they are officially recognized in the party.
“The Hawks is recognized taskforce in the NDC party. They perform the roles like members of the party and providing security for the party," he touted.
He disclosed that even though the group has its leadership, he is a leading member and is not ashamed to admit it publicly insisting he sees nothing wrong with the group and the role it plays in the party.

“I told you the other day I am not a leader of the Hawks, I am just a member and a proud one at that. The president is the Commander-In-Chief of Delta Forces, Invisible Forces, Kandahar and the rest, how can he ask us to disband our group? We are not going to disband the Hawks today or tomorrow”, he disclosed.
Yammin, however, insisted that members of the Hawks were card-bearing members of the party who were duly recognized to perform functions of the party by providing security during elections to augment what was being given by the police which was woefully inadequate.
To buttress his point, he disclosed that even the leader of the group is a member of the security committee of the party and has been taking part in their meetings contrary to another school of thought they are not known to the umbrella family.
