Security Personnel Told To Exhibit Neutrality

By GNA -

The Hohoe Zone Security Election Taskforce has been inaugurated with a call on security service personnel to display the highest sense of neutrality and transparency before, during and after the December poll.

Mr Fredua Agyeman Boakye, Volta Regional Sector Commander of Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) and Hohoe Zone Security Taskforce Co-ordinator, challenged servicemen to rise above what he called parochialism, self-centeredness and display the highest sense of professionalism during the election.

Inaugurating the 11-member committee chaired by Mr Kofi Adei-Akyeampong, Hohoe Divisional Police Commander, he charged them to be non-partisan, fair and firm to duty.

Mr Boakye said the Volta Region had been re-zoned into five divisions with the Hohoe Zone being the biggest and the most complex.

It comprised Hohoe North and South constituencies, North Dayi, Biakoye, Buem and Kadjebi Akan constituency.

He challenged the zone commanders and taskforce co-ordinators to lead by example, uphold discipline as well as the confidence reposed in servicemen by the electorates, for an incident free poll.

Mr Boakye demanded maximum reciprocal cooperation from political parties and their supporters.

Mr Adei-Akyeampong, chairman of the Hohoe Zone Security Election Taskforce, on behalf of members pledged their support for the national assignment and reiterated their collective readiness to do a good work.

Mr David Acheampong, Hohoe Municipal Director of the Electoral Commission mentioned flash points as polling stations in Hohoe town, Alavanyo, Gbi-Wegbe and Wli that demanded careful attention.
