President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Monday broke his silence on recent cases of kidnapping in the country and gave an assurance that tough decisions were being taken by the government to deal decisively with the matter.
He stated that unlike Nigeria, Ghana had not known such unfortunate phenomenon of kidnapping, adding that “we need to do something about it so that it does not become a feature of our society and that the government was determined to resolutely contain the issue.
President Akufo-Addo declared the resolve of the government to address the situation when a delegation of the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition called on him at the Jubilee House yesterday.
“Decisions are being taken as we speak that will be a clear manifestation of the determination I have to deal with this matter,” he declared.
The President stated that the trend of vigilantism was of great concern to Ghanaians and the government, especially in view of the greater devastating dimension of the phenomenon in other parts of Africa.
He urged all to support the bill on vigitalism that the Executive had presented to Parliament to deal decisively with the problem.
