The leader of the Minority in parliament, Haruna Iddrisu, has sent a stern warning to the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
According to the NDC man, the NPP should note that they are not the only violent group in the country.
In an interview with TV XYZ, the lawyer said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not countenance any form of violence from the ruling government in the upcoming elections.

He opined that the NDC is capable of responding to any form of violence the NPP put up as the December 7, 2020 polls draw near.
“The NPP has no monopoly over intimidation or violence and, so, they should stop treating our young people the way they do”, the Tamale South MP said.
He was also quick to add, “we’re [NDC] very very capable of responding to it”.
The legislator prayed the NPP to uphold the integrity of Ghana’s electoral process in the coming elections.
Mr. Iddrisu also accused the Akufo-Addo government of recruiting thugs into the security services to perpetrate mayhem.
“When you have vigilante boys being recruited into the security agencies, it can be worrying,” he said.

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that former Chairman of the Public Interest and Accountability Committee (PIAC), Dr. Steve Manteaw, has described both the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as “thieves”.
Speaking on Adom FM in Accra, Dr. Manteaw said the two main political parties in Ghana have created a loot and share system to milk the country of its resources.
“… the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) only come to power to use their intelligence to create, loot, and share from the country's coffers,” he fumed.
