President John Mahama has instructed the Police service to ensure that the killers of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporter in Asawase in the Ashanti Region, Sadiq Abubakari are apprehended and made to face the law.
According to the president, the gruesome murder of the late Sadiq Abubakari has a negative impact on the country’s democratic credentials.
The 37-year-old was stabbed to death last Friday by unknown assailants for allegedly locking down the party office and threatening to beat up the constituency Chairman who is believed to have made unpleasant comments about the flagbearer of the party, Nana Akuffo-Addo.Addressing his party members in Wa in the Upper West Region as part of his two-day official visit, President Mahama called on the Police to ensure justice for the deceased.
He lamented that the recent violent happenings in the camp of the opposition NPP is wrong.
“These things that are happening, acid bath is wrong and then recently another supporter was stabbed. It is not acceptable. I’ve asked the Police to investigate and find those who did it and bring them to book.”
President Mahama maintained that “there is no place in our politics for violence. No amount of political power is worth shedding the drop of blood of any single Ghanaian. Politics is not a life and death struggle.”
“Politics is live and let’s live because this country belongs to all of us, it doesn’t belong to one group of people. So that is how we should handle our politics, by consensus because we have the same objective. All of us want the country to be a better place, it’s just that we differ in our approaches in how to do it. So it should not lead us to kill each other. And so we will find out who did this stabbing and murder of this youngman and police must bring them to book as early as possible,” he added.
