Election 2024: We’ll deal with troublemakers – Henry Quartey

The Minister of Interior, Henry Quartey, has strongly warned that persons who incite violence before, during or after the 2024 general elections would be dealt with irrespective of political affiliation.

This follows the reported pockets of violence recorded at some centres in the ongoing limited voter registration exercise, which led to the arrest of the Member of Parliament for Asutifi South, Collins Dauda.

Speaking to the media in Accra, Henry Quartey assured reporters of his outfit’s commitment to ensuring a peaceful electoral process.

“Let me sound the wording again, You know my track record, I walk my talk. Anybody who goes to do something other than what is prescribed, we will do our best to ensure that the law will take its course and the court of competent jurisdiction will do its work.

“May I sound this warning that it will not be political vindictiveness. If anybody commits, whoever the person is, we shall ensure that the law will take its course.”

He added that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) would peacefully hand over power should it be defeated in the upcoming general elections

“As a politician, as a political party, it is our hope, it is our wish, it is our belief that by the grace of God, the good people of this country, the good work that we have done in infrastructure and in other interventions, they will give us another mandate.

“Perish the thought, and I say again, perish the thought, If they decide to give their mandate to somebody, we will hand over peacefully and walk away, go to the drawing board and come back Insha Allah. But I know that the grace of God abounds and so we shall break the 8.”
