The National Peace Council (NPC) has cautioned rampaging supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to cease attacks on other individuals and the wanton destruction of public property.

The chairman of the NPC, Rev Prof Emmanuel Asante, told Class FM’s Naa Dedei Tettey on Monday, December 12, that he wished to “plead with the winning side that they should try as much as possible to be circumspect”, adding: “They should listen to what their leaders are saying and stop this whole business of seizing toll booths, burning toll booths, and doing the things that they should not be doing here and there. I think it is barbaric, it is condemnatory.”

Some persons affiliated to the party took over the administration of the recently constructed interchange at the Kwame Nkrumah Circle in the wake of the party’s victory in the 2016 polls. The supporters seized the keys to the offices for the staff and management of the €74million interchange on Saturday.

There were similar reports of NPP supporters arbitrarily taking over public installations across the country, reminiscent of scenes in the aftermath of the 2008 polls won by the NDC, which witnessed some of the triumphant party’s supporters taking over the running of public toilets, toll booths, community centres, among other structures.

In Kumasi on Saturday December 10, few hours after Nana Akufo-Addo’s confirmation as winner of the 2016 election, some party faithful stormed some public toilets manned by staff of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), seized the keys to the facilities, assaulting some persons in the process.

The toll booths located at the Ashaiman end of the Accra-Tema motorway were seized and taken over by well-built men in the early hours of Monday, December 12.

Four people also sustained gunshot wounds after some members of the NPP and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) clashed on Sunday, December 11, at Ekumfi-Esuehyia in the Central Region.

But Rev Asante has condemned the acts of the supporters.

He underscored: “Barbarism in politics has no place in this era, and we should put a stop to that. We have allowed this category to enter our politics. An eye for an eye will leave all of us blind.”

He pointed out that peace must prevail to enable President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo appoint competent people to form his government.

“The president-elect needs peace of mind to form his government and we should not add to the troubles. This is not the time for that and so the supporters doing that should know that they are doing a lot of harm to mother Ghana,” he added.

Meanwhile, leaders of the two leading parties have condemned the post-election violence. The police have also hinted that patrol teams will be dispatched to flashpoints and culprits involved in lawlessness will not be spared.
