An eyewitness Emmanuel Afful who reported from the constituency stated that the residents in July this year warned that they will not allow voting to go on in the constituency if their roads are not fixed.

Afful reports that the timely arrival of personnel of the military and Police managed to disperse the crowd allowing the EC officials to move into the constituency.

He adds that the residents began to run for their lives after they saw the heavily armed military and police personnel.

As a reminder, Ghanaians are heading to the polls today Monday, December 7, 2020, to elect a President and 275 Parliamentarians.

Over 17 million voters are expected to take part in the exercise. The figure is 2 million more than the number of voters who voted in the previous election in 2016.
