- Chief Director for the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs, Dr. Aggrey Darko has disclosed that the combined efforts of the various security agencies cannot resolve a full blown-out conflict in the country ahead of the December 7 polls.
Dr. Aggrey who indicated that his statement was backed by empirical studies said this in an interview with Samuel Eshun, host of the Happy Morning Show aired on Happy 98.9 FM and e.TV Ghana
“If there is generalised violence in Ghana during this election period, our security agencies cannot contain it. We have the proof based on empirical studies we have undertaken. If there is violence in Legon, Abokobi, Saltpond, Adenta and all over the country at the same time, I am telling you, our security agencies cannot contain the situation”.
He made this statement to clarify his outfit’s continuous stakeholder engagement with political parties in ensuring peace ahead of the December polls with regards to the disbandment of their vigilante groups. “We have Bibles in our homes and can choose to read them daily but we still go to church on Sundays, don’t we?” he asked.
