On behalf of the NPP.

I am pleased to officially invite you the NDC, to a meeting to discuss the menace of political vigilantism which has gain notoriety in the country and explore ways of permanently disbanding the various vigilante groups associated with Ghana’s two major political parties

This invitation has been necessitated by the President’s call during the 2019 State of the Nation’s Address, but also, by the legitimate concerns ‘stressed by overwhelming Ghanaians about this menace, and the need for the two political parties to do the needful, in the interest of the nation.

 

You would recall that since the President made this call our National Chairman, Hon. Freddie has been engaging your good self in a telephone conversation on the subject. We think that time is now rife for the parties to hold this crucial meeting, which the nation has been looking forward to.

We have also taken notice of your request to expand the scope of the engagement to include multiple stakeholders and wish to assure you that the NPP avails itself for this consideration at the meeting which will afford the two parties the opportunity to agree on the various stakeholders to be invited in the subsequent engagements.

The NPP proposes that this crucial meeting comes off during this week at a venue convenient to you. And so, we entreat you to as soon as possible get in touch with the Party when you find a suitable venue for this meeting.
