Awuku's visit follows calls by president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for both the NPP and the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to disband their militia groups, failure of which he will do so himself through legislation.

He said: “We believe that the NDC must also do its part to come to the table without any conditions and let us also help our youth. And again, also embark on a mission of bringing down this pressure, bringing down this tension and also help our nation get out of this unfortunate situation.”
