The Aflao Traditional Council has released a statement condemning the action of the Government for deploying military personnel to the Volta Region as the registration of the new Voters Register commences tomorrow, 30th June 2020.
It’s alleged that the soldiers were sent there to prevent Ghanaians for that matter Voltarians who live in Togo from crossing the border to come and register for the new Voters ID.
Well, the Aflao Traditional Council headed by the paramount chief Torgbui Amenya Fiti V has condemned the government for making such a move.
According to them, the government cannot claim to be fighting for black lives by sympathizing with the family of George floyd while it subjects its own citizens to inhumane treatments.
“The Government of Ghana cannot allow its troops to brutalize its own citizens without recourse to justice whilst hypocritically lamenting George Floyds’ passing at the hands of a white police officer in Minneapolis (USA). We are peace-loving and believe in Ghana’s “Freedom and Justice” for all.”
