Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The 2020 general elections is exactly 57 days away.
The commander of the Southern Command of the Ghana Army, Brigadier General Abraham Yeboah Nsiah, has stated that the military will do all that they can to deal with anyone who will starts trouble.
According to him, his unit is ever ready to deal with any form of aggressions ahead, during and after the polls.
Speaking to the press after a simulation exercise on Monday, October 12, 2020, he noted that the military will not disappoint Ghanaians in assurance of their peace.
“The security services in the Western region and Western North region, we are united, we are together. We stand together, we support each other, we are ever prepared for the task ahead of us.
Ghanaians have vested their trust in us and we are telling them that we are ready. We are assuring them that we are ready to defend them when the time comes," he added.
In a completely different news, YEN.com.gh in an earlier report stated that the Member of Parliament for the Mfantseman constituency, Ekow Quansah Hayford had been shot dead.
A Citi News report suggested that he was shot on his return from a campaign trip on the Abeadze Dominase–Abeadze Duadzi–Mankessim road by unknown assailants.
An eyewitness who happened to be a part of the MP's campaign team said the suspected robbers stopped the MP's vehicle with others which had joined him on the campaign tour but the MP's driver attempted to drive through.

The attempt by the driver to drive through angered the armed men forcing them to fire shots at the driver's hands making him loose control of the vehicle.
They were then ordered out of the vehicles and the MP reportedly introduced himself when the suspected robbers asked which of them was Ekow Qwansah, the eyewitness said.
He also noted that the armed robbers stated that they were not there to harm anybody but rather to steal from them.
