STATEMENT BY FORMER PRESIDENT RAWLINGS ON
DEPLOYMENT OF SECURITY AGENCIES IN VOLTA, OTI REGIONS
The presence of the military and other security agencies in some parts of the Volta and Oti Regions is generating ĺ a⁰⁰y amongst innocent citizens whose basic way of life is being disrupted.
The deployment along the borders at peacetime especially at this particular point in time has created so much suspicion and will call for a lot of intelligent flexibility and diligence.
The Covid-19 restrictions have created enough difficulties for most of our citizens. Let us not make it worse with overbearing and intimidating behaviour towards our border dwellers whose livelihood solely depend on activities along the border.
Ahead of the voter registration exercise and the December elections, it is important that we demonstrate a sense of fairness and justice to all individuals and groups of people whilst maintaining the integrity and the sanctity of the process.
Kobina Andoh Amoakwa
