An official of the Electoral Commission at Tamale in the Northern region, Jocelyn Techi has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Parliamentary Candidate for Tamale North, Alhassan Suhuyini of threatening her life.
According to her, Suhuyini who’s also a presenter at Accra based Radio Gold warned her to desist from acting as though she’s a member of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) else she’ll be treated as such and dealt with ruthlessly.
The alleged threat on the life of the EC official follows her interview with Kasapa FM’s Northern Regional Correspondent Eliasu Tanko on Friday, during which she disclosed that the ruling NDC party is attempting to register minors in the ongoing limited voters registration exercise in the area.
The situation reportedly created chaos at the Sakasaka registration center.
Madam Jocelyn Techi stated that members of the NDC who are pushing to register the minors are also threatening to beat up agents of the NPP who are protesting their action; a behaviour she said is distracting affairs at the polling center.
“The challenge here is the minors they are registering, it’s too bad. They come with a minor to register and when you try to challenge, they come with a quarrel that if you don’t give the card to the person they will beat you up. It’s so bad… at the end of the day, people will come and plead that they need the card.
“There is this man who has been sitting here, he will keep calm and when the day ends, he will plead and take all the cards that were challenged and distribute it to them. He is making everything difficult for us. So they are making our work difficult for us, especially the NDC agents, their chairmen and executives,” she stated.
However, Alhassan Suhuyini who declined to respond publicly to the allegation made against him confirmed to Kasapa FM off air that he indeed called Madam Jocelyn Techi but denied threatening her.
