NDC disowns Yamin over comments on vigilantism

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has dissociated itself from claims by one of its key members Joseph Yamin that the party would not disband vigilante groups associated with them.

Yamin, who is a former deputy sports minister, according to media reports, said the main opposition will not heed to calls by the president urging the two main parties to dissolve their vigilante groups or such organisations associated with them.

In a statement signed by its general secretary Johnson Asiedu Nketia, the NDC said the position of the former deputy Ashanti regional minister does not represent the views of the party on the vigilante menace.

“The Functional Executive Committee of the NDC wishes to state unequivocally that the above statement does not in any way represent the views and/or position of the party.

The party wishes to reiterate its unwavering commitment to the process of disbanding all political vigilante or party militia groups in the country," he said.

The party has however taken a strong view to this issue and has since invited Yamin to clarify the said reportage.
