President Akufo-Addo has charged religious leaders to join his government fight socio-economic evils in society.
Speaking at the graduation ceremony of Trinity College in Accra Saturday, the President added 'the new phenomenon" of vigilantism to the list of such evils as corruption, crime and illegal mining.
The fight for jobs has been literal since the President took over the reins of government in January 2017. Groups like Delta Force, Invisible Forces which proved vigilant during the 2016 elections have proved difficult for government to control.
Some members of the NPP affiliated Delta Force stormed a Kumasi Circuit Court which was trying some of their members who chased out the government appointee.
Another group, Burma Camp in the Northern region locked the office of the School Feeding Program for more than a week, protesting the distribution of jobs to caterers.
Former President Mahama has said the Akufo-Addo government is just reaping what they sowed.
President Akufo-Addo, under pressure to deal with the violence, has promised to 'walk another path' by bringing the holigans to face the law. But the president has also entreated church leaders to speak out against such ills.
