Ayawaso West Wougon: CODEO questions security arrangements for the polls

CODEO has registered her displeasure and unhappiness about the intimidating presence of the security personnel, especially masked security persons, at the various polling stations.

A statement by CODEO further calls on the Ghana Police Service, the National Security Minister, Interior Minister, and the entire security set-up of the country to expeditiously conduct investigations into the violence that broke out earlier in the day at La Bawaleshie, and to take subsequent appropriate action. It is imperative that all security agencies immediately review the security arrangement put in place for the election, in a bid to understand what happened today as far as personnel deployment is concerned and to enhance security planning for similar exercises in the future.

CODEO  has also called on the Electoral Commission and the security agencies to give hearing to the NDC regarding their concerns about the electoral process which resulted in their boycott of the election and to investigate any valid concerns they may have.

CODEO will continue to observe the counting and declaration of results, and will issue its preliminary statement in due course.
