The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress, John Mahama has urged the constituents of Fodome Ahor not to be intimidated by the presence of security personnel deployed to the area ahead of the elections.
According to him, the presence of the security personnel should not deter them from coming to vote on election day.
Addressing residents as part of his campaign tour of the Volta Region, John Mahama charged the residents to come out in their numbers on election day and vote massively for the NDC.
“So on 7th December, come out in your numbers, please don’t be intimidated. We have noticed that they have increased security deployment in the region. They originally said the soldiers who came earlier were there because of the coronavirus, but they took them back despite the virus still being here and now they have brought them back again.”
“Don’t be intimated, don’t be frightened, please come out in your numbers and make your voice count. Everybody must own your polling station, don’t leave it to the branch executives alone, keep an eye on the polling station and make sure that everything is done according to the law. And when they are going to count please come out and witness the count and let our party agents make sure that the polling pink sheets are filled accordingly,” he added.
He also asked the residents of Fodome Ahor and its adjoining communities in the Hohoe Constituency of the Volta Region not to succumb to any material inducements ahead of the 2020 polls.
