The Volta Minority Caucus of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is compelling the government to withdraw the Military officers from Ghana’s boarder in the Volta Region in the next 24 hours.
Addressing the media at the NDC’s weekly press briefing, the Chairman of the Minority Volta Caucus, Emmanuel Bedzrah, said, “The fire has been laid, and we the Voltarians are ready. We are not cowards and I want to repeat that, we are not cowards”
He further claimed that, “We don’t fear people, we only respect people and therefore, whoever deployed the military personnel to our borders should call them back immediately. We are giving them up to the end of tomorrow, Tuesday, the military personnel must be called back.’’
However, the Caucus alleged that,’’ the deployment is an attempt to intimidate residents of the Volta Region in the upcoming voters’ registration exercise.’’
He made the call on the backdrop of the deployment of military personnel to some parts of the country.
Members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), including flagbearer and former President John Dramani Mahama, have condemned the action by government.
The Founder and Leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who also condemned action by the government, described the move as ‘intimidating behavior’
Meanwhile, the government has denied claims hence explained that the deployment is to secure Ghana’s borders because of COVID-19 and the illegal entry of foreigners into the country.
