The Deputy General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party; Lawyer Nana Obiri Boahen has descended heavily on opposers of Military men deployed in the Volta Region.
On Tuesday, 30th June 2020, the Electoral Commission of Ghana will begin the process of compiling a new register of voters, which the Commission will use for the 7th December 2020, presidential and parliamentary elections.
Factions of Ghanaian citizens have been in strong aversion to the decision of the New Patriotic Party and the Electoral Commission to compile the new Voters’ register.
The Volta Region of Ghana which has been a stronghold of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has, at the call of the NPP government, been besieged by military men at the Togo border ahead of the Compilation of the Voters' register to prevent the intrusion of foreigners from neighbouring countries.
Several concerns have been raised by the opposition party, NDC and other reputable Ghanaians concerning the presence of the soldiers in the Volta Region.
According to the NDC, the already existing restrictions concerning the COVID-19 pandemic has had its ravaging effects on people in the Region, and the presence of the military do not only exacerbates matters but also serves as a recipe to rig the December 7th general elections.
Reacting to this in an interview on Monday on ‘Dwenehobiom”—a popular Political Show hosted by well-versed broadcaster, Nelson Kwadwo Asamoah aka KK on Accra-based Hot93.FM, Lawyer Obiri Boahen described the critics as ‘stupid’.
According to him, those soldiers are present in the Region just like they are in several other parts of the country.
The Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, who went on an insulting spree, after unapologetically describing the critics as stupid, injudicious and likening them to a mad man and a drunkard from a town called Abronye, condemned apparent ethnocentric politics going on in the country.
