The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Ketu South, Dzifa Gomashie has issued a strong message to the government and its troops in her constituency.
The New Patriotic Party Government deployed an alarming number of soldiers to the Volta and Oti regions ahead of Tuesday’s voter registration exercise, a move many think is oppressive.
Speaking at a press conference organized by the National Democratic Congress in Aflao earlier today, the woman, Dzifa Gomashie recounted her childhood life of being born to a father who was a soldier and growing up in the barracks. She said she doesn’t fear the military because she once lived with them.
She called on the people of Ketu South to come out massively to vote whether they feel intimidated or not. She admonished them not to fear the soldiers but rather, they should come out and register to ensure that they are not disenfranchised.
The director of elections for the National Democratic Congress, Honorable Elvis Afriyie Ankrah said the NDC and the people of the Volta Region are Ghanaians and they will not succumb to any oppression. He also admonished the locals to go out and register and prove to the NPP that they are not afraid of anybody.
