NDC tasks Peace Council with venue for vigilantism talks with NPP

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has called on the National Peace Council (NPC) to determine the venue for discussions on vigilantism.

According to a Peacefmonline.com report, this follows a letter written to the NDC by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on the same matter.

In NPP’s letter, it indicated that its chairman, Freddie Blay, is holding discussions with the NDC on the matter.

It also indicated its consent to a suggestion that stakeholders such as the NPC should play key roles in the discussions.

The NDC indicated that it believes the NPC, as a mediator, should name the venue for the discussions, as it is ready to abide by its decision.

The proposed talks follow a call by President Akufo-Addo during his third State of the Nation Address (SONA), on the NPP and the NDC to take steps to disband their vigilante groups.

He however added that a failure on the part of the parties to do so would compel him to ensure a legislation deals with the matter.
