Arrest NPP hooligans: Akufo-Addo to Police
Thugs associated with the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), will find no comfort in the Akufo-Addo government, the President has said at the State House during the swearing-in ceremony of new Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo on Monday, 19 June.
“You’ll find no shield in my government from the law,” Nana Akufo-Addo told such hooligans, adding that recent mayhem by some NPP supporters in the Savelugu municipality of the Northern Region was “obviously unacceptable.”
The thugs are bent on preventing the president’s newly appointed Municipal Chief Executive (DCE), Hajia Ayishetu Seidu, from taking office because they claim she is not a member of the NPP.
There has been mayhem in the area since last week over the matter.
President Nana Akufo-Addo has, therefore, urged the police to crack down on all forms of hooliganism in the country irrespective of who is behind it and their political affiliation. “I urge the police to do everything in their power to bring to book all those who fall foul of the law,” he said.
