The National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has been sighted in a video exchanging words with soldiers at a voters’ registration centre in the Bono Region.
Mr. Nketiah says the soldiers stationed at Banda in the Bono Region are refusing to allow some residents to register in the Electoral Commission's ongoing exercise.
A video on Kasapafmonline shows the NDC scribe is seen infuriated and exchanging words with the soldiers who had blocked the road to stop busloads of people from accessing registration centres.

It is unclear where the people were being bused from.
Meanwhile, the NDC's flagbearer for the 2020 elections John Dramani Mahama has accused the NPP government of using the security to intimidate some legitimate Ghanaians from registering on the basis that they’re foreigners being bused from border towns into Ghana.
The former president in a Facebook post on Saturday, August 1, 2020, berated President Akufo-Addo for using Executive Power to foment ethnic discrimination and abuse.
But President Akufo-Addo has denied any form of intimidation against any group of people at the voter registration centres.
“One thing that excites me most is that the registration exercise in Ashanti region and other areas has been very peaceful, I haven’t heard of any person being denied the opportunity to register on grounds that you are not this or what so go we cant register you every person has the right to go and register."

YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the 2020 Campaign team of former president John Mahama has urged Ghanaians to ignore the “comical” efforts by Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to “divert” attention from the important things that matter to Ghanaians, with his recent post on social media in which he adduced 50 reasons to back his claim that President Nana Akufo-Addo has been a better President than Mr Mahama.
A statement issued by the Mahama campaign team signed by spokesperson James Agyenim-Boateng, on Thursday, 30 July 2020, said:
“This deliberate and comical attempt by Dr Bawumia to divert attention is as a result of the immense pressure he has come under after paling into insignificance following the selection of Prof Naana Jane Opoku-Agyemang as running mate to Mr John Mahama in the December 2020 elections”.
