No vigilante groups at NDC congress – Segbefia

The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has barred all vigilante groups from providing security at this weekend’s annual delegates congress, to be held at the Fanatasy Dome of the Trade Fair Centre in Accra.

The 9th National Annual Congress of the NDC will see 65 aspirants consisting of 59 males and six females contesting various national executive positions of the party.

But with issues of security becoming a major concern at such events, the NDC says it has constituted a security sub-committee to handle all issues of security as other groupings will not be tolerated.

Speaking to Class News, Mr Alex Segbefia, Chairman of the NDC Congress Planning Committee said: “The security sub-committee is taking account of all security for the congress and so we are not entertaining within the security sub-committee any groupings.

“Everything is under one heading, that is, the security sub-committee with very senior stalwart people who have dealt with security for years in control of what is happening.

“We have contacted the regional command, they are fully aware and it’s safe to say that there will be security presence of a level that will meet the number of people that are coming and everything will be under control.”
