The member of Parliament for Bimbila, Dominic Nitiwul has challenged President John Mahama to demonstrate his commitment to a peaceful election by acting on recent electoral violence that has happened in the country.

He said a lot of such incidents have gone unpunished which does not show commitment to peaceful general election come December.

President Mahama during his thank you tour of the Greater Accra Region reiterated his commitment to ensuring a violence free general election which will be the most successful in the country’s history.

However speaking on Metro TV’s Good Morning Ghana show on Wednesday, Hon. Nitiwul stated that it is not enough for the Prez. to assure and admonish Ghanaians, but should go ahead and act on issues that have the potential of marring the election.

” I expected the President to act on the Cherepone by-election shooting incident and the Yaw Boateng Gyan tape saga in which he was heard plotting how to foment trouble” he said.

He noted that the NPP as a party will do all within its power to ensure a peaceful election and expect the government to do same.
