The New Patriotic Party will be deploying about 40 heavily built men to all polling stations in the Northern region to protect the ballot boxes on Election Day.

This was revealed by the Northern Regional Chairman of the NPP, Daniel Bugri Naabu at the campaign launch of the Savelugu Constituency.

“Members of Kukurudu, my brothers and sisters greetings to you all for the massive turnout; this means that the election is won already but what I have to tell you is that you know the NDC, they know how to steal. They stole in 2008 and snatched it from us in 2012. So I beg you my elders what I have for the youth is that this year’s election if care is not taken they will steal again.”

“So on December 7, get some young and strong men about 40 to guard the box and if the thieves come to snatch away the boxes break their legs. You were witnesses to the Supreme Court ruling, would you allow them to steal again? If they steal again we are dead so this one is do-or-die. Don't agree! If they are not afraid of guns and cutlass we are also not afraid,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Ghana Police Service earlier cautioned political parties who would use vigilante groups to be prepared to contend with the Counter Terrorist Unit of the Service.

The Director of Counter Terrorism Superintendent of Police, Adofiem Raymond Wejong said that vigilantes were supposed to be people who were vigilant, law abiding and to report any bad deeds for the Police to deal with.

“Anyone who commits any act of violence in the name of any political party or under any cover is a common criminal and we will deal with such individuals as common criminals and not as political vigilantes.”

But Bugri Naabu said this decision is to ensure a repeat of 2008 and 2012 does not occur.

In a related development, the NPP parliamentary candidate of the Savelugu Constituency Somed Gunu said he will be a better leader for the area if he is voted into parliament.
