He added that the NDC was also being “seriously intimidated” by the national security operatives working in the interest of the NPP.

But the NPP has rubbished the claims and rather blaming the NDC for making excuses and complaints with no cause.

The general secretary, John Boadu, said the NDC was rather trying to scare people from voting.

This is the impression our opponents want to create in order to scare people from going to vote. Other than that what is the problem? Our sisters and brothers on the other side always will want to create confusion. When they are in government it is worse and when they are in opposition they are more dangerous,” he stated.
