It has been recorded that 13 separate violence incidents have been committed by NPP youth since he became president.

On Tuesday, some irate youth in the Karaga constituency in the Northern Region chased out the Chief Executive and the Youth Employment Coordinator.

Also, in Gwollu, in the Sissala West District of the Upper West Region, the youth reportedly stormed the District Assembly to demand the removal of the District Chief Executive (DCE).

Speaking at the 2017 Ngmayem Festival at Manya Krobo on Friday, President Akufo-Addo noted the persons who fall foul of the law will be dealt with without fear or political consideration.

He said:"I want to reiterate the commitment of our government to maintaining the peace and security in of our country. The application of the laws of the land will occur, in the words of the judicial oath, without fear or favour, affection or ill-will, and without recourse to the political, religious or ethnic affiliations of any citizen of the land.”
