Former President John Mahama has accused the current President, Nana Akufo-Addo for superintending over lawlessness in the country.
According to Mr Mahama, political vigilantism has become the order of the day under the watch of the Akufo-Addo led government but little has been done to curb the situation.
In a post on his official Facebook timeline, he said the spectacle coupled with the government’s unwillingness to clamp down on the activities of vigilante groups raises an eyebrow.
On the sudden deafening silence of the society against these acts of impunity, he expressed his surprise at the see no evil, hear no evil posture of the public even though the lawlessness is widespread.
“When you sow the wind, you reap a whirlwind!
“Political ‘vigilantism’ is spiralling out of control and government doesn’t appear to be able to deal with the situation. And the tragedy is that most of our moral society have become passive spectators.”
The comment of Mr Mahama comes in the wake of series of acts of vandalism and lawlessness that have been registered in various parts of the country since the NPP came to power.
Available statistics indicates that more than 19 acts of impunity by pro NPP vigilante groups have been recorded since January 2017.
