President Akufo Addo has warned that he will not tolerate the use of violence in this year’s elections.
Addressing a durbar of the chiefs and people of Sankore in the Ahafo Region recently, the President noted that any party or candidate which seeks to use ‘takashi’ or violence to win, it means the people do not want you.
“I’ll not allow anyone intending to foment trouble during the elections to succeed, be they an NPP or NDC member. I won’t tolerate it”, President Akufo-Addo said.
“As a candidate, if the electorate like you, you don’t have to use machetes, guns or spill blood to get them to vote for you.
“If you have to use takashi in the elections, then it clearly means the electorate do not like you. We don’t want any of that.
“We want the electorate to vote in a transparent, free and fair atmosphere”, the President said.
