NPP Primaries: “Stay away from Polling Stations”- Minister warns trouble Makers
Some political party hoodlums
Ashanti Regional Minister Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah is asking the security agencies to deal with any group of persons or individuals who may foment trouble at polling stations as the governing New Patriotic Party goes to polls to elect Parliamentary Candidates today for the December 7, general elections.
“We don’t want anything that will wreak havoc at the electoral areas and you should make sure you have no weapon of any kind in your possession because the security forces will lawfully deal with you when you’re caught,” he said.
The party has slated their parliamentary primaries today, June 20, 2020, and 102,000 delegates are expected to participate in the election of the party’s parliamentary aspirants across the nation.
In an interview monitored, Hon. Osei-Mensah urged the aspirants and delegates to maintain peace and order during and after the primaries.
“We don’t need any vigilante group at any place. We don’t need any macho-man anywhere. We’re also saying we don’t want to see any motorbike at any polling station or the immediate surroundings”, the Chairman of the Regional Security Council pointed out.
He, however, cautioned that there will be strict security presence at all the polling stations and any person found in possession of an offensive object will be drastically dealt with according to the laws of the country.
