NPP wants security personnel to wear name tags on voting day

The New Patriotic Party (NPP) has appealed to the Inspector General of Police to ensure that all security personnel deployed to polling centres on voting day displayed their tags boldly for easy identification.

Added to this, there should be special accreditation by the Electoral Commission (EC) to help the electorate, party agents and observer groups to make them out.

Odeneho Kwaku Appiah, the Kwabre West Constituency Chairman, said this was necessary to prevent any infiltration of the centres by hired thugs posing as security officers.

He was inaugurating the party’s campaign team for the Afrancho electoral area at Afrancho near Kumasi.

Odeneho Appiah said recent revelations by Mr Yaw Boateng Gyan, the NDC National Organiser, in a secret tape recording posed serious security threat to the smooth conduct of the December 7 polls.

He said it was against this background that adequate security arrangements must be put in place to remove doubts and assure all stakeholders that everything would be well.

Odeneho Appiah said it was unnerving the silence by civil society groups, religious organizations and traditional rulers over the alleged secret tape, noting that peace could only be achieved when there was justice.

He called on the party’s supporters to be vigilant to prevent cheating and any irregularities.

Mr Williams Owuraku Aidoo, Parliamentary Candidate of NPP, urged them to intensify their electioneering campaign to bring the party back to political power to end the bad management of the economy.

He said the payment of doubtful judgment debts combined with massive corruption and mismanagement had plunged the nation into deep economic mess that would need a visionary and transformational leader like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to fix.

Ms Beatrice Owusu, the Constituency Women’s Organiser, appealed to women to lead the party’s campaign since they are bearing the brunt of the economic hardship.
