The Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, Samuel Nettey George, has described the National Peace Council as a useless and dishonest entity that must be disbanded.
Speaking via Zoom on JoyNews’ Newsfile on Saturday, July 18, 2020, Sam George postulated that the Peace Council has been blind to the various pockets of violence meted out to some NDC supporters.
“The Peace Council is a dishonest organization that must be disbanded. They have shown that they are pro-NPP and such an organization should not be allowed to exist” Sam George fumed on the show.
Sam George was speaking in relation to violent skirmishes in the Banda Constituency of the Bono Region in which a young man believed to be apolitical has been killed as a result of the ongoing registration exercise in the Constituency.
Sam George further described the Peace Council as a bunch of deaf, blind and mute people doing the bidding of the ruling New Patriotic Party.
In his mind, the Peace Council should have censured President Akufo-Addo over the Banda incident and since they have not done so, it only means they are not fit for purpose, according to Sam George.
Surprisingly, he did not ask why the same Peace Council has kept mute over the violence Collins Dauda perpetrated against some innocent people in Asutifi South.
