The main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has officially written to the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare, to provide Ghanaians with updates on its investigations into acts of violence during the 2020 general election.
The letter signed by NDC General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, noted that for more than one year there has not been any update on the violence that characterised the registration exercise that preceded the elections and the elections itself.
“The National Democratic Congress is deeply concerned about this development because the party believes that one of the most effective ways of dealing with electoral violence is investigation, prosecution and punishment of culprits to serve as a deterrent to others,” the letter addressed to IGP and sighted by Prime News stated.
The NDC has always maintained that President Nana Akufo-Addo used state security forces to rig the elections.
In the letter to the IGP, the NDC presented an exhaustive list of evidence it believes will aid the investigation process.
The NDC is hopeful that the IGP will heed their call to provide updates on the investigation because since assuming office, he has demonstrated commitment to maintaining law and order and lifting the image of the police service.
