‘Don’t Go To Registration Centers To Solve Issues’- EC Cautions Politicians And Ghanaians

Published

on


The Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana has advised politicians to stop visiting polling or registration centers with the intention of resolving issues.

The commission on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, encouraged citizens with any problem in relation to the new voters card registration exercise to contact the right people such as the Commissions district review committees to solve the issues.

This was after a Member of Parliament for the Awutu Senya East, Hon. Hawa Koomson fired gunshots at a registeration center in Kasoa, in the Central Region over a misunderstanding.

There had been lots of people calling for the resignation of the Member of Parliament. However, police have invited the MP to assist in investigations as four people have also been arrested in connection to the incident.

Citing another incident was when the Member of Parliament for Tema West, Carlos Ahenkorah despite testing positive for the deadly coronavirus had to visit a registration center to solve a grievance.  

The Chairperson for the Electoral Commission reiterated that no politician or Ghanaian should visit any center with the notion of solving any grievance.

She said, they are policemen at each center and such if there is any problem with any individual, they should draw the attention of the police to it.

Western Togoland Riot Could Have Been Worse But For Security Intelligence – Minister

Published

on


The Volta Regional Minister, Dr Archibald Letsa has noted that this dawn’s riot by secessionist group, Western Togoland could have been much worse if security forces had not acted swiftly.

According to him, the security authorities picked intelligence on the impending widespread attack in the Volta region and acted swiftly to suppress it.

“What we witnessed this dawn could have been worse. We picked intelligence and made sure their initial plan of widespread attack in the whole Volta region was curtailed.”

The secessionists burnt tyres and blocked roads

“The people who did this do not come from the areas that were attacked . Many of these Guys were transported to the area,” he said on TV3’s New Day programme.

You Ignored Warnings Over The Western Togoland Issue, Resign Now – Adib Saani To Kan-Dapaah

Published

on


Security Analyst and Executive Director of Jatikay Centre for Human Security and Peace Building, Adib Saani has called for the resignation of Minister of National Security, Albert Kan Dapaah after repeated lawlessness by secessionist group, Western Togoland.

According to him, at the peak of the Western Togoland brouhaha, security experts warned government to deal with this issue at once and for all, however, little to nothing was done.

Mr Saani in a statement said, “When this Togoland issue started, some of us within the security space did not spare any moment or mince words, raising serious concerns about their activities and the existential threat they posed to the security of Ghana.

“Unfortunately, over the past few years, they have become more audacious and brazen and we can only expect more. They are able to make strong political statements and control the narrative. They seem to be succeeding in bullying government into submission. They have succeeded in disrupting lives and holding the nation hostage.

“Soon, we might go beyond condemning their actions to asking them what their demands are. With a heavy heart, I predict they might start targeting critical infrastructure. They have the capacity and geographical advantage (forest cover and international border) to engage in an asymmetrical warfare that could be hard to win.

“We ignored the early warning signs and thought this was all a joke. We arrest and release, re-arrest and release again. Despite the presence of intelligence officers, they have largely failed to gather actionable intel in real-time.

“Going forward, the over 100 kilometre Accra – Atimpoku – Juapong stretch is very crucial and needs permanent detachment stationed within that enclave. The Adome Bridge and the dam are high-value targets that we cannot trade-off. Let us invest in human security because largely, these secessionists have some level of Community support.

“Let us collaborate more effectively with Togolese authorities so the group does not engage in cross border activities and the trafficking of weapons to oil their seeming war machine.
