NDC, Volta Region Chiefs ready to implement plan B after gov’t failed to withdraw troops

The Minority in Parliament say they are ready to implement Plan B after the ultimatum they gave to government to withdraw troops in the Volta region expired.

Salt 95.9 FM has gathered that Members of Parliament and other officials in the NDC will meet with chiefs in the Volta region on their next step.

According to reports we have gathered, a date has not been communicated yet but the meeting will take place later this week or the weekend.

The chiefs and MPs will deliberate on how to approach the continuous military presence in Ketu South, North Tongu MP Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa says.

The legislator says he is unable to disclose what the next line of action will be.

This would be revealed after the meeting with the chiefs of the area, who the NDC says are equally concerned about the presence of the troops.

The military men, locals and the NDC allege are harassing residents in the area.

The leading opposition party has accused government of deliberately deploying military into the region to intimidate residents to prevent them from going out to register in the EC’s voters registration exercise.

Government responding to the allegation said the security personnel were deployed in February and March to enforce the closure of the borders and prevent people from using unapproved routes into the country.
