President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has charged the Ghana Police Service to deal with perpetrators of violence in the just ended voters’ registration exercise.

In his 15th address to the nation, he categorically condemned the violent acts which marred the process at some registration centres in the country.

“There were nonetheless deeply regrettable, isolated incidents of violence which I condemn unreservedly and which I charge the police to deal with, without fear or favour. But the exercise was generally peaceful,” he said.

This comes after reported cases of clashes between some supporters of the two main political parties; New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC).

A 28-year-old man died after he was stabbed in the back at Banda in the Bono Region by men reported to be New Patriotic Party (NPP) supporters.

This has been condemned by Civil Society Organisations (CSOs), various traditional rulers and members of the public who called for the law to take its cause.

However, he applauded the Electoral Commission, led by Jean Mensa for the successful organisation and running of the exercise including the weekly updates to the nation.
