The President of the republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that vigilantism will never recur in Ghana.

He made this statement during his media encounter held at the Banquet Hall today [Wednesday].

He further indicated that he ‘’is continuously working to ensure that discipline and order is maintained.

The activities of vigilante groups associated with the ruling government, painted a negative image for his administration.

‘’Ladies and gentlemen, I should not omit from this accounting the disgraceful behaviour of some members of my party, the NPP, which has been described as vigilantism. I believe there is no longer any argument that criminal behavior wears no political colours, and is solely to be dealt with by the police. I pray that we have seen the last of it. We are continuously working to ensure that it does not recur, that we uphold the rule of law,’’ he said.
