Fix land tenure System in order to end vigilantism…….. Sam George

Member of Parliament  for Ningo Prampram Sam George has added his voice to calls for the disbandment of militias in the country by calling on the appropriate institutions to fix land tenure system. He believes members of these groups are land guards hence when the land tenure system is fixed  and the police service allowed to work by clamping them down on these land-guards, they will be left no choice than to leave the system.

The Mp made the call when he appeared before the Emile Short Commission of inquiry for the second time.

There is growing public concern over political vigilantism in the country with some high profile incidents linked to groups affiliated with both the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition NDC. There is also media report circulating that Sam George saying that Asoka boys and Hawks are vigilante groups when the Police has attributed the shooting incident NDC party headquarters to some members of the Hawks.

“What I know for a fact and can state without equivocation is that the party I belong to –the National Democratic Congress – does not have any vigilante group. The two groups I told you I was familiar with; Azorka boys and Hawks are groups that hold allegiance to individuals. I will not refer to them as vigilante groups but community-based organizations. So, let me state for the record that the NDC has no vigilante group.”
 Reacting to media reportage,  the Ningo Pramoram Mp, noted that he was not suggesting that armed militia is good when he is a victim. He said the time has come when Politicians who owe  these groups are named and shamed This is the surest way to end vigilantism in the country.
Mr Sam George also believes vigilantism will come to an end only if   the Police Service will be professional in the discharge of their duties.
