The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has justified the presence of pro-NDC vigilante groups at the venue for the Party’ National Delegates Conference, saying they are there to support the police and other security personnel to maintain law and order at the event.
‘’They will be complementing the security. We have security at our headquarters and every organization has internal security so I don’t have any problem having them around to compliment the state security’’ he said.
Prior to the event, there were assurances from top party gurus that they will not allow party vigilante groups to attend the event.
But their presence there today and particularly in uniforms to announce their loud presence has shocked many.
Mr. Asiedu Nketiah who is a part of the main organisers of the national delegates conference says he was not the one that gave the assurance that the vigilante groups will not be admitted to the event.
He said there is nothing wrong with their presence at the event.
The biggest opposition party in the country is holding its national delegates conference today at the fantasy dome of the Accra International Trade Fair Sits to elect national officer who will steer the party’s affairs for next 4 years.
