Volta Region Resource Group, an association affiliated with the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) has debunked allegations by the National Democratic Congress(NDC) of military intimidation and assault, saying there is peace and cordiality in the on-going registration exercise in the Region.
Secretary to the group, Mr. King David Akpabli addressing a press conference in Ho said the situation in all the 18 Constituencies in the region are different from what the NDCs wanted Ghanaians and the world to believe.
The group which took a one-week tour of the voter registration centres in the Volta region to equip themselves with facts on the grounds said, there was peace and calm atmosphere, devoid of tension as the NDC told Ghanaians.
According to Mr. Akpabli, the group were even impressed with the preparation by the EC and observation of the COVID-19 protocols.
He said contrary to claims by the NDC that the military deployment across the country’s boarders was to prevent people from registering, there was no any military officer at the registration centres.
Mr. Akpabli said the team observed that agents of both NPP and NDC at the centres across the Region were working without hindrance, saying “there was no acrimony between the agents.”
He said the NPP government and Party would not foment trouble or create confusion, but would rather work hard to prevent political intolerance and promote peace, which was recipe for development.
Mr. Akpabli said the NPP was a development-oriented party and would ensure that the roads of Denu-Aflao and the Eastern Corridor among others, were completed for the betterment of the people of the Volta Region.
He called on the NDC to take Voltarians seriously and stop using them as “Election Winning Pawns.”
“Voltarians are serious people, Voltarians are hardworking people and are discerning,” he said.
