MEMBER of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has stated that the party’s vigilante groups sacrificed a lot for the victory of the party.
According to him, when members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) were killing the then opposition members, these people fought for them and so people should not discourage them.”
“I will support these vigilante groups in NPP today, tomorrow and anytime. If their activity is a means of protecting the public purse, then I support them fully.
The outspoken government firebrand said this on Adom TV’s Morning Show, “Badwam” yesterday.
The MP who claimed he never had the full briefing on that said he would offer his full support to the ‘boys’ because they protected him and several big wigs in the past against the National Democratic Congress (NDC) while in opposition.
Members of the vigilante groups aligned to the NPP since January 2017 are reported to have engaged in various attacks on persons who served in the previous administration.
The latest of their actions which have been a source of worry was the attack on George Agyei, who was appointed by the National Security Minister to coordinate security in the Ashanti Region.
The group has since defended that they undertook that action because they cannot work with Mr. Agyei.
Leaders of the group have since apologised for their action which attracted widespread condemnation.
Reacting to the issue, the outspoken MP indicated that since these vigilante groups are recognised by the party, they will all be enlisted into the national security.
“The vigilante groups are recognised in the party and so I will personally make sure they are recruited into the National Security. If it is work that they need, we will gladly employ them to continue working for Ghana,” he noted.
He further urged all members of the party’s vigilante groups to come to him for employment.
“Any of the Invincible Forces and Delta Forces who have no work should come to me today, we will give them work…,” he said and urged members of the vigilante groups not to disappoint when enlisted into the National Security.
Mr. Agyapong further added that members of the party’s vigilante groups would be enlisted into the National Security of the country
