A security analyst, Saani Adib says the main opposition NDC’s refusal to sign the peace council’s document on vigilantism reinforces the case of the party’s disingenuity about the vigilantism fight.
Speaking on Anopa Kasapa with host Kweku Owusu Adjei, Saani Adib said; “The NDC’s explanation given so far on why they didn’t append their signature is laughable; it’s not tangible for me as a security person.”
He said NDC is fully aware of this roadmap and the Code of Conduct that ought to have been signed by the parties yesterday and hence has no justification of withdrawing their commitment on Tuesday.
“In their consultative discussion held last year somewhere in May at Peduase Valley Resort, they agreed to signing this document. As part of the phases of this document, particularly phase 1a, sub-section 3, prescribes that they will affirm their commitment to the Code of conduct on Political Vigilantism and signed that Code in a public function organised by the National Peace Council(NPC). So this is disingenuous on their part.” Saani disclosed.
The main opposition National Democratic Congress says it refused to sign the Peace council’s document on vigilantism other key stakeholders have not yet signed.
According to the party, signing the document will be premature since most of the agencies assigned greater responsibilities have not been made to sign.
“We looked at the roadmap and we realised that document assigns responsibilities to various agencies and the fact those agencies were not part of the signing to the treaty, we thought it was not good enough. Such a national document should not be signed by only two political parties. We think signing the document now will be premature but in principle, we agree with the content.
“Out of the 22 recommendations only 4 mentions the political parties so we think they should take lead in signing the document,” a member of the party Abraham Amaliba told Starr News.
