Minority Leader in Parliament and MP for Tamale South Haruna Iddrisu has warned that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not accept unprofessional conduct and intimidation from the security services ahead of the December 7 elections.
He also cautioned that “any abuse or misuse of the mandate of the security services will not be accepted by the opposition”.
The Minority Leader Haruna Iddrisu was speaking at a gathering of Chiefs and people and members of the garage association in Sunyani Magazine just before the NDC Presidential candidate John Dramani Mahama announced the suspension of his tour of the Bono Region over concerns about the EC’s provisional voters register.
A statement issued by the 2020 campaign spokesperson for the NDC James Aagyenim-Boateng said the Tamale South lawmaker also indicated that “the Police and Military per their mandate are supposed to be neutral institutions of state and must behave as such”.
The statement noted that “the government has embedded members of its vigilante groups in the security services to harass and intimidate people”.
It added that “the NDC will not accept a repetition of the state-sponsored violence and intimidation that was unleashed during the Aayawaso West Wuogon by-election”.
