Former president John Dramani Mahama has cautioned the government against using the military to patrol polling stations during the 2024 general elections.
Mr Mahama since the close of the 2020 polls has been bemoaning the use of military might to intimidate voters at polling stations.
Speaking on Power FM/TV XYZ earlier this week (November 9), Mahama said the NDC will insist that the role of security for polls be laid squarely in the domain of the police. “About soldiers, we don’t want any soldier at the Polling Center, they should maintain a distance,” he stated.
“It is the Police who are supposed to be at the polling centres and we are all going to be at the collation centres from close of poll till results are counted and collated,” he continued.
