The founding President of the “think tank” group IMANI Africa Mr. Franklin Cudjoe has related to the trending topic of the deployment of armed security personnel to Ketu South constituency in Volta Region.

Within the past few weeks, there have been many media reports of how armed military officers have been deployed into the Volta Region especially the Ketu South municipality and how some residents there say they feel intimidated by their presence.

 

In a Facebook post Mr. Franklin Cudjoe described the explanations given by Hon. K. At Hammond on why armed men have been deployed into the Volta Region as offensiveHon. K. T Hammond on why armed men have been deployed into the Volta Region as offensive. He said;

“The offensive words of Mr. KT Hammond had better not be the widespread belief of the NPP government lest it reinforces a disturbing perception of “Our Country”.

BELOW ARE MR. FRANKLIN’s EXACT WORDS

I thought the country’s borders are shut! Where from this ethnocentric-induced paranoiac state-sponsored targeting of Voltarians and Otis? Are the Military now certifiers of citizenship? The real worry, the state should be interested in, is the chaos that looks set to occur with plunderous law allowing extended vouching for all sorts of persons to be registered as ‘clean’ voters- that in addition to vigilantism are powerful kegs to the peace- not law abiding citizens in the Volta region. The offensive words of Mr. KT Hammond had better not be the widespread belief of the NPP government lest it reinforces a disturbing perception of “Our Country”. No! No! No!– Franklin Cudjoe
