The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr John Dramani
Mahama, says President Akufo Addo has lost the war against armed robbery in the country.

Addressing NDC supporters at Gomoa Dawurampong in the Gomoa West constituency on
Wednesday, the first day of his five-day campaign tour of the Central Region, Mr Mahama
paid a tribute to the deceased Member of Parliament for Mfantsiman who was a victim of
the state of insecurity in the country as he was reportedly gunned down by armed robbers
last week.

He said even though there is no curfew in most parts of the country, citizens are now afraid
to go out in the night for fear of being attacked by robbers.
“There is insecurity in this country and President Akufo Addo has lost the war against armed robbery”, Mr Mahama noted.

The NDC’s presidential candidate said the next government of his party will not arm
vigilante groups but rather will focus on resourcing the police and military to enable them
discharge their duties.

“If I am president, I am not going to give weapons to vigilantes, invincible forces and Delta
forces to kill ordinary Ghanaians. I will give weapons to the police and the army to fight
armed robbers”, he assured.

Mr Mahama said Ghana was noted as one of the safest countries in the West Africa subregion but that is no longer the case under the Akufo-Addo regime.

He said the next NDC government will work hard to ensure the safety of all Ghanaians and
urged the electorates to vote for him and NDC parliamentary candidates.
