A peace walk by supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and National Democratic Congress (NDC) on October 25, turned violent in Jamestown in the Odododiodio constituency.
The incident saw several others from both parties sustain various degrees of injuries.
President Akufo-Addo has condemned the clash between the supporters of NPP and NDC, stating that any act of violence will not be tolerated especially as the country heads to the polls.
During the 2021 first-quarter budget statement presentation, Ken Ofori Atta also noted that the government has set out security measures to ensure a violent free election.
He added that this provision is to curb and contain all threats before, during and after the elections.
“Government has also instituted various security measures to ensure that we have peaceful elections and effectively contain all threats.”
