There had been many contention against the deployment of military men to the Volta Region ahead of the controversial voter registration exercise.
However, the current to unsurprisingly add his voice to the saga is Former President Rawlings.
In a statement, the former president said, these military men deployed to the Volta Region for security purposes are rather causing antagonism or bitterness.
This was what Rawlings had to say “The presence of the military and other security agencies in some parts of the Volta and Oti Regions is generating animosity especially amongst innocent citizens whose basic way of life is being disrupted.
“The deployment along the borders at peacetime especially at this particular point in time has created so much suspicion and will call for a lot of intelligent flexibility and diligence.
Ahead of the voter registration exercise and the December elections, it is important that we demonstrate a sense of fairness and justice to all individuals and groups of people whilst maintaining the integrity and the sanctity of the process”. The charismatic former president indicated.
