ATO FORSON DISRUPTS VOTER REGISTRATION EXERCISE WITH THUGS AND THREATENS MAYHEM IN AJUMAKO
The incumbent member of parliament for Ajumako Enyan Essiam Constituency and a member of the NDC, Mr Caisel Ato Forson on Sunday, 26th of July 2020 was captured in a video disrupting the on-going voter registration exercise in one of the registration centers in the Constituency and threatening mayhem in the subsequent phase of the registration exercise which is to be held in his hometown of Ajumako Bisease and its environs.
The member of parliament according eye witness account and (name of page) sources stampeded the Enyan Onyaadze registration center which is also the hometown and the place of abode of the New Patriotic Party’s parliamentary candidate Dr. Kwesi Rashid Etuaful with over 30 well built and armed men amid threats and the use of swearing words in a heated exchange with the District Director of The Electoral Commission, Mr Samuel Aikens who only sought to replace a faulty biometric registration machine with a new one from The Electoral Commission’s district office.
The scene created by the law maker who should have known better made most of the registrants flee the registration center, bringing registration to a halt for almost 2hours.
“Tomorrow we shall see”, these are the exact words Mr Forson used in swearing during his exchanges with the District Electoral Commission Director. The law maker further threatened to spill blood of his opponents if his whilms and caprices with regards to the on-going voter registration is not granted by the registration officials and agents of his opponents in the next phase of the registration which is to be held in his hometown of Ajumako Bisease and its surrounding towns.
It took the intervention of the military team deployed to the constituency to bring matters to normalcy at the registration center and to allow the registration to continue.
This show of total
disrgard for the laws guiding the on-going registration process and the negligence with regards to the observation of covid- 19 safety protocols at the various registration centers by Mr. Ato Forson, A law maker who should know better and his group of thugs is worrying.
The security agencies are hereby notified to keenly watch every move of Mr Ato Forson for every registration center he has visited with his gang of thugs, chaos has ensued.
