President Akufo-Addo has indicated his resolve to get tough on what he describes as the “phenomenon of kidnappings” in the country.

The three missing Takoradi girls and the recent kidnapping of some expatriates have heightened public fear.

However, speaking to members of the Ghana Anti-Corruption Coalition (GACC) at the Jubilee House on Monday, the President said he is determined to deal with the recent kidnapping scare.

“We are all concerned about this phenomenon of kidnappings which we have not known. Our brothers and sisters in Nigeria have known it. But we have not known it in this country and we need to do something about it to make sure that it doesn’t become a feature of our society.
“I am very, very determined on the issue and decisions are being taken as we seek what will be a clear manifestation of the determination I have to deal with this matter,” he said.
He also condemned the leakage of contents of the Emile Short Commission report that investigated the Ayawaso West Wuogon parliamentary by election violence.
The report was presented to the President in March but the government has yet to issue a white paper on the recommendations.
Unverified portions of the report have since been leaked to the media. President Akufo Addo told the GACC members that the full text of the report will soon be made public.
