The President of Ghana had this to say with regards to the Political impasse in Asunafo South.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has admonished the National Peace Council to be fair to all sides of the Political divide and treat everyone equitably.
He was addressing the 13 member National Peace Council at the Jubilee House during a courtesy call.
The president in his address said the silence of the Council during attacks on New Patriotic Party (NPP) members in Sankore in Asuafo South, before election 2016 was a source of worry to him and his campaign team then.
“At the same time, I think that you must accept that none of us are inviolate from comments and criticisms. I sit here and I know very well what it means to be the object of criticism. I think you must also take it in good fate. “For instance, the example of the issues in Sankore.
The issues in Sankore begun in the previous government when the member of Parliament there who later became the Regional Minister in Brong Ahafo was associated with systematic violence against members of my party. “Somehow rather, there was never an investigation into the matter.
No liability was found and nobody was held accountable. I was in Sankore myself and I was met by a very frightened and clearly terrified NPP community who basically wanted me to stay because they thought they will be attacked if I left them. The Police at the time said it was a sensitive matter.
There comes the change and still they don’t see any effort being made to come to grips with the issues,” the President said”.
“There can be Peace in Sankore when those culprit and alleged murderers are brought to book” Nana lamented.
