Veteran Journalist, and managing Editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Junior has expressed surprise at the unusually heavy presence of military and police personnel at the residence of the EC Chair, Madam Jean Mensah.
According to the veteran journalist, the increased number of personnel and the presence of armoured vehicles is strange.
“Last week I was coming home from town, late at night, there were barricades around her house; you can’t drive in front of her house without being thoroughly searched and so on. What is it that has highlighted the security level of the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission?” he asked on the Alhaji and Alhaji show on Pan African TV broadcast on Sunday.
Mr Pratt also wondered if the National Security was privy to any impending danger to the Commissioner’s life which the rest of the Nation does not know.
“What does National Security know that we don’t know? In any case, why does she feel so frightened as to call for this level of security, and if this level of security is called for, then something must be happening,” he noted.
