The Inspector General of Police, Dr. George Akuffo Dampare, today, Monday, 22 May 2023, met the leadership of both the governing New Patriotic Party and the main opposition National Democratic Congress at the district Police command in Kumawu.
The meeting was in connection with Tuesday’s by-election in Kumawu.
The IGP cautioned both political parties to keep their supporters in check and advise them not to foment any trouble or disturb the peace of the area before, during, and after Tuesday’s by-election.
He warned that any lawlessness will be dealt with in accordance with the law.
The by-election has been necessitated by the death of the sitting MP. Phillip Basoah, who was buried on Saturday, 20 May 2023.
The NPP candidate, Ernest Yaw Anim is competing with NDC candidate Kwasi Amankwaa and two independent candidates both coincidentally known as Kwaku Duah.
