President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged the Ghana Police Service to arrest and prosecute all persons involved in any act of violence in the just ended voters’ registration exercise.
Delivering his 15th COVID-19 address to the nation, he categorically condemned the violent acts that characterized the process at some registration centres in the country.
“There were nonetheless deeply regrettable, isolated incidents of violence which I condemn unreservedly and which I charge the police to deal with, without fear or favour. But the exercise was generally peaceful,” he said.
Akufo-Addo also applauded the Electoral Commission, led by Jean Mensa for the successful organization and running of the exercise including the weekly updates to the nation.
A 28-year-old man died after he was stabbed in the back at Banda in the Bono Region by men reported to be NPP supporters.
This has been condemned by Civil Society Organisations, various traditional rulers and members of the public who called for the law to take its cause.
