There was a standoff at an Electoral Commission (EC) registration centre at Kpembe in the Salaga South Constituency of the Savannah Region today 17th July, 2020 as residents of Kpembe woke up to find a Bus load of “strangers” parked in front of the house of the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Salaga South Constituency Hon Adam Salifu Braimah who doubles as the Savannah regional Minister.
The bus with registration number GT 4662- 12 carrying over 50 people who reports day are neither indigenes nor residents had allegedly been brought in from Damongo to register to make them eligible to vote in December elections.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) party agents at the Kpembe L/A Primary School registration centre resisted the registration and raised an alarm which saw other NDC supporters rush to the registration center station to disperse the “strangers”.
This incident led to a stand off between the NDC and NPP at the Registration center. NDC supporters have since been monitoring the registration to make sure no stranger registers.
It is alleged the regional minister then resorted to transporting the strangers to other registration centers in Salaga including Mr Gado house registration centre, Dagombia centre and new market centre but NDC members again stopped the “strangers” within Salaga town from registering.
The “strangers” accoring reports had no option than to huddled together in the bus still parked in the front of the Savannah Regional Minister’s house with NDC sympathizers keeping an eagle eye on them.
