Politics of Thursday, 31 December 2015
The Ministry of Interior has said that it will deal with any security group formed by any political party to compete with state security during the electioneering campaign in 2016.
He said that the formation and activities of political vigilante groups served as a threat to state security agencies.
He said the Ministry will clampdown the activities of such groups and that the Ministry will deal ruthlessly with any group caught in disturbing the peace the country has been enjoying so far.
According to the Deputy Minister of Interior, Mr James Agalga the security agencies will not tolerate any political party who will compete with state security apparatus in the maintenance of law and order in the coming months.
Mr Agalga said, the security service in Ghana have been very professional in their call to duty and for that reason they were not going to give room to any political party to ruin their hard earned reputation.
“Our security agencies have been very professional at least starting from 1992, they have never let us down, and I am very confident that they will live up to expectation again in 2016”.
“There will be no room for political vigilante group, they must understand that they have no place in our political affairs in this country.”
