After nearly 5 hours of deliberations between the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the National Peace Council, yesterday April 9, 2019, it was agreed that the two parties meet again on the 29th of April 2019 for further discourses.

The discussions will set the rules for the disbandment of all political party related vigilante groups in the country.

The NPP was explicit after the meeting that they are committed to the following:

  1. Disband any groups associated with violence operating for political purposes
  2. Prohibit the ownership, hiring, or use of any such groups by the parties or individuals within the parties, and
  3. Cooperate with the law enforcement agencies and relevant stakeholders towards total eradication of the menace.

In the midst of intermittent heated arguments and threats by the opposition National Democratic Congress at some point to walk out of the meeting, the two parties at the end of the day agreed on the need to hold another meeting in furtherance of the desire to disband all vigilante groups as directed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

A high powered NPP delegation led by National Chairman included the 1st Vice National Chairperson, the General Secretary, the National Organiser, the Minister of Regional Reorganisation, the Legal Committee of the Party and the Director of Communications.

The NDC side also saw the National Chairman and General Secretary among other national executive officer in attendance.
