The beef in the Western Togoland Independent is expanding and making a strong waves across Ghana especially Volta Region as many were put in dilemma over the subject matter. In the recent times, there were news trending in some parts of Ghana on Western Togoland Recruitment.
Responding to the alleged news of Western Togoland Recruitment, a Branch communication officer and Constituency research team member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Bismark Kwabla Kpobi said, the news is a political plot to reduce NDC’s votes in December 2020 polls hence the need for party leadership to sit up now to address the issue.
Bismark Kwabla Kpobi, a proud Voltarian says, until the Leader and Flagbearer of the NDC John Dramani Mahama and his running mate Professor Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang led NDC victory is actualised come December 7, 2020 he won’t stop writing on the things the public must do to getting the needed victory.
“Yes, I have been in Volta through North Tongu , South Tongu And my own constituency Central Tongu, per what I heard was that our youth are being deceived into believing that Western Togoland is recruiting them into the various security services with joint effort of German government.” He indicated.
Clarifying issues, he said, the scope of Western Togoland Recruitment has nothing to do with education, rather willingness and skills, eg blacksmith, farmer, fisherfolks who can swim, petty traders, and many more and in deed the youth falling for it.
“I eavesdropped to a conversation between one elder and opinion leader in my Electoral area and what I heard indeed confirmed the rumours in the Tongu lands that our youth are being taken away into something that won’t yield any benefits to them but will cause NDC greatly. Such an elder was arrested before by the security with regards to Western Togoland independence and went to court severally but still pursuing that course” He explained.
Bismark Kwabla Kpobi outlined what he described as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) agenda toward the upcoming elections
“NPP having known that NDC votes will be appreciated in the coming December 7 election, they are then thrown into fears hence devised evil means to relax the rules for Western Togoland advocates to pushing for their agenda so that they can’t cut NDC votes down since such identified groups won’t like to vote come December 7.”
“Also, the youth who are being lured into such fictitious recruitment centres will be arrested somewhere October November and then detain them until election is over before their release. Their target is to get hundreds of people into such grounds before the state security arrest them though they are much aware of everything going on, NPP only encouraging them behind the scenes to get the guys there on their numbers before such arrest.” He said.
He therefore calls on the NDC leadership to immediately approach influential chiefs on the Volta land and get a remedy for this now before it is too late.
Again, Bismark Kwabla Kpobi reiterated that, NDC communicators should go on psychology of pushing fears and panic into such youth who might be there or planning to join, because NPP will make their arrest soon so they should not join such recruitments going on.
“Many youth from Tongu lands are already victims, and I pray our MPs/PCs in Volta work on that now before NDC votes over thousands will be locked down till election is over. Get involved and make this victory happens for JM and Jane NDC.” He told.
