She served this notice in an interview on Onua FM‘s Pae Mu Ka on Monday, February 21.
Speaking in local language Twi, Dr Bissiw said the vigilantes to be trained will serve as the “bird’s eye” for her party to ensure that the ballots are protected in 2024.
In 2019, Parliament passed the Vigilantism and Related Offences Act, Act 999 to disband vigilante groups including political vigilantes and land guards.
The Act prohibits any person from forming, organising or operating a vigilante group.
