The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has urged the police to act mutually and professionally to ensure that all those involved in last weekend's Tamale riots are brought to book, no matter their social or political inclinations.
Mr. John Dramani Mahama, running mate of Prof. John Evans Atta Mills, flag bearer of National Democratic Congress, said this at separate rallies at Akuse, Kpong and Frankadua in the Eastern Region.
He said: "The police should do their work impartially and deal with trouble makers according to law to ensure peace."
He said peace could be brought to the Northern Region if the police did their work well devoid of any political influence and courted the confidence of the public.
Mr Mahama, who is on a 10-day campaign tour of the Eastern Region, said the police should rise above media reports in which the two leading parties, NDC and NPP, are making accusations and counter accusations against each other, and bring the culprits to book.
He said the NDC under the leadership of Prof. Atta Mills would win the December election and would therefore not do anything to destroy that chance of serving the nation.
Mr Haruna Iddrisu, MP for Tamale South, said President Kufuor should leave a legacy of peace to ensure that the troubles in the north were put to an end.
He said it was sad that the NPP presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had said that there would be no drop of blood in the December election but the violence seen in the North could not support that language.
He said if the NPP could turn a blind eye to the wrongs of their party and could only pursue the NDC for wrongdoing then governance had to be redefined.
Mr Michael Nyawunu, NDC parliamentary candidate for Lower Maya, urged the people to vote for NDC to come back to pursue its human-centred development programmes.
