Ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) has officially written to the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to dialogue over the disbandment of vigilante groups within their setups.
The correspondence comes a month after President Akufo-Addo directed the two major political parties to dissolve their vigilante groups during his State of the Nation Address.
“We have also taken notice of your request to expand the scope of the engagement to Include multiple stakeholders, and wish to assure you that the NPP avails itself for this consideration at the meeting, which will afford the two parties the opportunity to agree on the various stakeholders to be invited in the subsequent engagements,” the general secretary John Boadu said in the letter addressed to the national chairman of the NDC Samuel Ofosu Ampofo.
It added: “The NPP proposes that this crucial meeting comes off during this week, at a venue convenient to you. And so, we entreat you to as soon as possible, get in touch with the party when you find a suitable venue for this meeting.”
