Former president John Dramani Mahama has criticised the heavy military deployed to the Volta region during the voter registration exercise and also ahead of the elections on December 7.
Speaking at the peace signing ceremony in Accra on Friday December 4, Mr Mahama who is also the presidential candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) said : “The military siege of the Volta Region and other locations during the registration exercise created an intimidatory atmosphere akin to a nation at war.
“But we are optimistic. In the face of similar doubts in the past, Ghanaians have risen to the occasion and delivered peaceful elections.
“It is my prayer that despite our deepest fears we shall be proved wrong and Ghana will once again be proven to be the beacon of democracy in Africa.”
