Stay away from Hohoe Constituency – National Democratic Congress PC warns non-residents

Prof. Margaret Kwaku, parliamentary candidate of the National Democratic Congress for the Hohoe electoral district in the Volta region, cautioned citizens outside the electoral district to avoid the temptation of being bused into registration centers in the constituency to be registered.

Prof. Margaret, argued that these acts are deception, which may lead to misrepresentation.

The registration process that has reached its final phase has been marked by counter-allegations by the two major political parties about the busing of non-residents and the harassment of registrants resulting in flashes of violence at some registration centers throughout the country.

For example , similar reports from the Ketu South, Ho West, and Akatsi North Constituencies existed in the Volta region, with the Hohoe constituency being tagged as a flash point ahead of the 2020 polls.

But the National Democratic Congress ‘s parliamentary candidate, addressing the media in Hohoe on Tuesday, denied any wrongdoing on the NDC ‘s part, while urging non-residents to stay off the constituency.

Nevertheless, she noted that the exercise was relatively calm and friendly given the misunderstandings during the first phase of the registration exercise.

Prof. Margaret Kwaku, a lecturer at the University of Health and Allied Sciences, is in a seemingly two-horse race against current NPP energy minister John Peter Amewu to retain a seat held by the NDC from 1992 onwards.

Under previous NDC and NPP governments both candidates worked as Municipal Chief Executives for the Municipality of Hohoe.

When the registration process of the Voter reaches its two final stages, both the NDC and the NPP are burning hell to ensure that as many voters as possible are enrolled in their respective strongholds.
