“The people you encounter are the very people under whose authority you wear your respected uniforms” John Mahama to the Military.

The former President of the Republic of Ghana and a Flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress, (NDC), Saturday 27th June 2020, made a statement in support of Regions such as Oti and Upper West where soldiers have been sent to safeguard the borders. He said to the Military “The people you encounter are the very people under whose authority you wear your respected uniforms”


The Ghana Armed Forces and other security personnel were assigned to safeguard the border towns in Oti and Upper West Regions, to prevent foreigners from Togo who would enter Ghana to register for the Voter Identification ID Card.

This massive development creates anxiety among some of the political leaders and residents in the Volta; Oti and Upper West Regions

The Flag bearer of the NDC, urged the Ghana Armed Forces not to become the tool by which the rights of the innocent Ghanaians are abused. “The politicians who send you to intimidate fellow citizens will not be there always but your commitment to the sanctity of the state of Ghana is eternal.”

He also urged all citizens of Ghana to take keen interest in this exercise and not to sit on the fence.
