The government has clarified issues concerning the military being sent to some parts of the nation, yet dismissed attestations that the activity is expected to scare qualified Ghanaians from enrolling in the voter's enlistment practice which starts on Tuesday. 

The nearness of the security officials, some of which having mounted tents and others in a fight, has been a wellspring of worry for certain inhabitants of the Volta Region including the Volta minority assembly in parliament. 

As per them, the activity is a piece of government's plan to disappoint qualified Ghanaians in their constituent fortifications. 

In any case, Defense Minister Dominic Nitiwul stated that such allegations are false allegations by the NDC and its flagbearer, previous President John Mahama. 

"It ought to be overlooked; it's a clear sense of propaganda on the part of the NDC," Mr Nitiwul said and cautioned the avoidance of such bogus data and ancestral plan to drop it since it doesn't support the country. 

He disclosed that the organization to protect the borders throughout the nation is just to help the Ghana Immigration Service to step up its outskirt watches on the rear of illicit sections, from neighboring nations regardless of the closure of Ghana's outskirts. 

Mr Nitiwul said the actions taken has become necessary due to the expanding number of the novel coronavirus cases in the nation despite the measures set up by the legislature to curb it. 

"We have conveyed troops over the whole nation and the reason is to assist the Ghana Immigration Service to prevent individuals from intersection [into Ghana] in light of the fact that we have such a large number of unapproved courses and the numbers of covid cases are getting elevated," he expressed. 

‘They’re not arming to polling stations’

As indicated by Mr Nitiwul, the arrangement has no connection at all to the up and coming voter enlistment work, taking note to that, the troopers won't be included in the activity. 

"The army are not going to any center; the officers will be at the boaders to prevent individuals from coming in or going out," he expressed. 

He along these lines encouraged all to resist the urge to panic as each and every individual who is qualified to enlist to cast a ballot will have the chance to do so when the enrollment begins on June 30. 

"The individuals of Volta district, especially the boss and individuals, will enlist and register well. The individuals of Ghana will enroll and enlist well," he guaranteed. 


The Minister cautioned that as a legislature answerable for the security of Ghanaians, they "won't sit unconcerned and permit individuals who are crossing into our nation".
