Stay Off Hohoe Constituency – NDC PC Warns Non-residents
The opposition National Democratic Congress’ Parliamentary Candidate for the Hohoe constituency in the Volta region, Prof. Margaret Kwaku has warned persons outside the constituency to resist the temptation of being bused to registration centres in the constituency to be registered.
Prof. Margaret, maintained that such actions constitute cheating and could lead to misrepresentation.
The registration exercise which has entered its final phase has been characterized by counter-allegations from the two major political parties over the busing of non-residents and the intimidation of registrants leading to flashes of violence at some registration centers across the in the country.
In the Volta region for instance, there were similar reports from the Ketu South, Ho West and Akatsi North Constituencies, with the Hohoe constituency being tagged as a flash point ahead of the 2020 polls.
But addressing the media in Hohoe on Tuesday, the NDC’s parliamentary candidate denied any wrong doing on the part of the NDC, while warning non-residents to stay off the constituency.
She however, noted that despite the misunderstandings during the first phase of the registration exercise, the exercise has fairly been calm and peaceful.
Prof. Margaret Kwaku who is a lecturer at the University of Health and Allied Sciences is in a seemingly two-horse race against current Energy Minister, John Peter Amewu of the NPP to retain a seat which has been won by the NDC since 1992.
Both candidates served as Municipal Chief Executives for the Hohoe Municipality under previous NDC and NPP administrations.
As the Voter’s registration exercise enters its two final phases both the NDC and the NPP are hell burnt on ensuring that as many people as possible get to register in their respective strongholds.
