Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo constituency Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye says two of members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been arrested following the clash at James Town last weekend.
He says he will do all within his power to ensure such violent clashes never happened again.
He also urged the security agencies to do their work to ensure they bring a finality to the issue.
“You have organized your walk peacefully and we allowed you, now we wanted to do ours and all of a sudden you organized thugs to pelt my people with bottles, one of the NPP guys shot at the crowd. All the incident that has happened in the constituency we have pictures and videos. Those who started the violence are walking freely and two of our boys have been arrested”.
A peace walk by supporters of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) turned violent in Jamestown in the Odododiodio constituency on Sunday morning.
In a video sighted by Primenewsghana supporters of the two leading parties were hurling bottles at each other amidst the firing of gunshots.
At least 20 persons were injured in the clash whilst a building believed to be the NPP’s office was vandalized.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo has condemned the fight that ignited amongst the supporters.
Speaking to some residents in the area as part of his three-day tour in the Greater Accra Region, the President stressed that a peaceful election is what will promote development, hence, electorates should always exhibit tolerance and love to one another.
“We want peace in Accra. The election is about expressing your view and your choice, therefore, there is no need to fight. Only those who have nothing to offer start trouble. If you have a good message, you sell it rather than being violent.
“I am pleading with you, we want peace in Accra during the elections, the world is watching us and we have to behave properly,” he said.
He then urged the citizens to take into account his works over the past four years in government and retain him come December 7, 2020.
