YEN.com.gh has gathered the Progress People's Party (PPP) has urged President Akufo-Addo to find stricter solutions to tackling the issue of the vigilante groups in the country.
In a report by Classfmonline.com, the chairman of the PPP Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond in a press conference on Monday, condemned the actions of the Delta Force and called President Akufo-Addo to enforce strict measures to tackle the growing issue of the group's activities.
"In strongest terms, with the current lawlessness happening in the country and the clear lack of leadership by the ruling New Patriotic Party to deal with, as well as the hypocrisy and complicity of the opposition National Democratic Congress as an all-time key contributor and actor in the crisis on our hands, we demand that the president take urgent steps to stop the lawlessness with immediate effect to save our country from degenerating into an ungovernable society and a sure candidate for failure as a state under his watch," Dr. Brew-Hammind said.
The New Patriotic Party-affiliated Delta Force and Invincible Force groups have quickly developed into a public issue of concern recently.
Following the Delta Force's assault on the Ashanti Regional security coordinator, George Adjei, and the most recent attack on Kumasi circuit court where 13 of their members were on trial for that crime, there have been many calls for an end to the group's freedom to act as they do.
Different stakeholders from opposition parties, the public and the NPP executives have also publicly condemned their actions, and have urged the security personnel in the country to take action and bring the culprits to book.
Meanwhile, Nii Allotey Brew-Hammond also charged President Akufo-Addo to solve the illegal mining activity known as 'galamsey' in three months or face legal action against the ruling government at the International Court of Justice.
He stated that it was imperative the activity was tackled and stopped as it had caused major damage to the country's land and water resources, and could have dire consequences for Ghana in the near future.
