The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has asked the National Peace Council to select a venue for the dialogue between them and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on how to disband their vigilante groups.
This was contained in a response by the NDC after NPP officially wrote to them to dialogue over the disbandment of vigilante groups.
The correspondence comes a month after President Akufo-Addo directed the two major political parties to dissolve their vigilante groups during his State of the Nation Address.
A response signed by General Secretary of the NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said “we are gratified that you have, in agreement with our view, confirmed our position that this discussion has to be a multi-stakeholder engagement.
“In furtherance to this, we have taken the liberty to request the National Peace Council to kindly exercise its statutory mandate and assume the role of Mediator in the deliberations on the above subject…we hold ourselves ready to meet you at any venue and date the National Peace Council may propose.”
