Veteran Ghanaian journalist, Kweku Baako has advocated for employment opportunities for members of vigilante groups in Ghana.
According to him, it is important that members of such groups are reintegrated into society once such groups are abolished.
The renowned journalist was speaking about the much-awaited meeting between the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) spearheaded by the National Peace Council, as requested by President Akufo-Addo.
He also cautioned against the call for the inclusion of other groups into the discussion, as he feared it may end up as a “forum.”
Peacefmonline.com reports that the parties agreed there is an urgent need to halt the activities of vigilante groups in the country.
The general secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, however, expressed disappointment at the outcome of the meeting.
To him, his expectations were not met because the two political parties could not agree on the scope of discussions as far as vigilantism is concerned.
