The Minority leader and Member of Parliament for Tamale South, Mr. Haruna Iddrisu, on Tuesday warned that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not accept unprofessional conduct and intimidation from the security services ahead of the December 7, 2020, general elections.
Speaking at the same gathering of chiefs, people and members of garage associations 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 Electoral Commission’s provisional voters register, the Minority Leader warned that any abuse or misuse of the mandate of the security services will not be accepted by the opposition.
Mr. Iddrisu said the police and the military, per their mandate, are supposed to be neutral institutions of state and must behave as such.
He noted that the government has embedded members of its vigilante groups in the security services to harass and intimidate people, adding the NDC will not accept a repetition of the state-sponsored violence and intimidation that was unleashed during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
