Attacks on Peace Council
The National Peace Council has over the years been attacked. This is usually over what particularly opposition parties consider as inaction on the part of the council.
The National Democratic Congress claims its flagbearer, former President John Mahama won the 2020 polls. Or at best the elections should go into run-off and not the victory the Electoral Commission Chairperson declared.
On 9th December, 2020, Jean Mensah – led Electoral Commission declared President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as president elect. But Rev. Professor Paul Frimpong–Manso said two Peace Council’s vehicles were attacked and they were damaged.
Rev Dr Ernest Adu-Gyamfi recounted that most of NPC members are traumatized. The attacks were physical and, in some cases, gunshots were fired in their presence.
