The Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Dramani Mahama says he will not allow armed robberies ruled over the country if he wins the upcoming elections on December 7.
According to him, the NPP ruling government has failed to fight against armed robberies and that is why they have become uncontrollable in the system.
Speaking to party supporters at Gomoa Dawurampong as part of his tour of the Central Region, Mr. Mahama opined that there are no curfews in many parts of Ghana but you can’t leave home at night, otherwise, armed robbers will pounce on you and rob or kill you”.
“When we look on the Accra-Cape Coast road, armed robbers have taken that portion into their hands by blocking it to rob passengers and drivers which shouldn’t be so but the NPP government has closed his mind on this situation Ghanaians are going through,” he said.
“If Ghanaians give me (Mahama) the nod to become President of Ghana, I’m not going to give weapons to vigilantes, Invisible Forces and Delta Forces, to kill my beloved people of Ghana but will rather give weapons to police and the army to fight armed robbers adding that actions of the robberies these days has created a huge hole in Ghanaians heart.
Mr. Mahama noted that: “For all you know, it is these same vigilantes they’ve been training at Bundase that are the one perpetrating the armed robberies at night”.
“But the NDC will stop all that if we come to power because they say Ghana is the safest country in West Africa but where is that safety now? He questioned.
“These days, people are scared to venture out at night all because of the ongoing activities of these evil robberies.
Ghanaians are not in safe condition hence this is the time to kick out Akufo-Addo to go with his deplorable mind.
