The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has vowed to demand a peaceful country from the governing New Patriotic Party, saying it handed over a peaceful nation on January 7.
Speaking on Saturday at the NPP’s delegates conference in the Central Region, the deputy general secretary of the NDC, Koku Anyidoho, said they will not allow vigilante groups associated with the NPP to run riot and ruin Ghana.
He said: “On the 7th of January, 20/7, a peaceful and fast-developing Ghana was handed over to you by the NDC. All we are saying, is; give us more peace and development,” he said.
“Ultimately, as the governing party, we demand that you give us our peace. We shall not compromise on our peace. Give it to us or we shall demand it.
“The NDC shall not sit idly by and allow the Delta Forces and Invisible Forces to hold this nation to ransom as we continue to call on the law enforcement agencies to apply the rules of State without fear nor favour. Lawlessness shall not be allowed to run riot and ruin Ghana.
“We are glad His Excellency the President continues to assure the nation that he will not allow lawlessness to sink his image and that of his Administration. We pray he stays genuinely committed to his words.”
Anyidoho aka the Bull, concluded his speech by reminding the government of its electoral promises to Ghanaians.

“Give us jobs; give us roads; give us schools; pay nursing trainee allowances; employ nurses; pay teacher trainee allowances; reduce utility tariffs; pay DKM customers; pay contractors and please sack the army worms from Kwame Nkrumah’s Ghana,” Koku Anyidoho said.
