NDC won’t accept intimidation from security services – Haruna Iddrisu
The Minority Leader has warned that the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) will not accept unprofessional conduct and intimidation from the security services ahead of the December 7, general elections.
Haruna Iddrisu stated that any abuse or misuse of the mandate of the security services will not be accepted by the opposition.
He was speaking at the same gathering of chiefs, people and members of Garage Associations in Sunyani Magazine just before the NDC presidential candidate John Mahama announced the suspension of his tour of the Bono Region.
The NDC flagbearer is returning to Accra over what he described as a chaotic process and nature of the provisional voters’ register being exhibited by the Electoral Commission.
The Tamale South MP said the police and the military, per their mandate, are supposed to be neutral institutions of state and must behave as such.
Mr Iddrisu noted that government has embedded members of its vigilante groups in the security services to harass and intimidate people.
He added that the NDC will not accept a repetition of the state-sponsored violence and intimidation that was unleashed during the Ayawaso West Wuogon by-election.
