The Minority in Parliament has cautioned the country’s security forces to remain neutral in the ongoing voter’s registration exercise.

According to Minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, the said personnel instead of keeping the peace of the country are rather harassing and intimidating supporters loyal to the opposition National Democratic Congress.

There have been reports of the huge presence of military personnel in several parts of the country notably border towns. The development is said to have sent shock waves down the spines of residents of these towns with some calling for the immediate withdrawal of the said officers.

At a press briefing in Accra on Friday, July 10, 2020, the Tamale South MP called on the security forces not to allow themselves to be used by the governing party to harass and intimidate eligible voters in NDC strongholds.

“Our caution to the Police and the Army is for them to stay neutral as a state institution and work to secure the peace, stability and security of our country. Partisan politicking is not their calling therefore they should not allow themselves to be used in that regard. All acts of intimidation and harassment by the army and police must cease henceforth.”

Mr Iddrisu also accused the security officials of touring homes of indigenes in the Volta Region and demanding their identities, a move he described as unacceptable.
