Ms Elizabeth Yeboah, a census enumerator, has said she had a shock of her life when she was threatened with a gun by a man for going to his house to enumerate him.

Speaking to the Ghana News Agency (GNA) at Aboadze near Takoradi on Monday, she said she went to Aboadze on official duty October 21 to enumerate residents and entered a man’s house to enumerate him.

Ms Yeboah said on reaching the house, she introduced herself and explained her mission to the head of the house.

She said after the explanation, the man entered his room, pulled out a locally manufactured gun and threatened to shoot her if she did not leave the house.

Ms Yeboah said she was shocked and left the house without uttering a word amidst insults from the enraged man.

She said she encountered other challenges such as insults and threats by people during the census and “I have vowed not to be a census official again in my life even if the government promises me heaven and earth.”

Ms Yeboah said that some people refused to be enumerated citing economic hardships in the country and failure by successive governments to fulfill their promises to the people.
