The opposition New Patriotic party (NPP) has accused the government of constructing roads and carrying out other development projects in villages in Togo in order to entice the Togolese to come to Ghana and vote for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the November elections.
According to the Volta Regional Chairman of NPP, Peter Amewu, the NDC has extended electricity from the Volta Region to Kametornu, a town in Togo.
He told Accra-based Joy FM that the gesture of the government is meant to entice the people of Kemetornu, who are Togolese nationals, to come and vote for President John Mahama.
Reacting on the same medium, however, the deputy general secretary of NDC, Koku Anyidohu, described the claims as groundless, adding that they were part of an attempt by the NPP to derail his party’s march to electoral victory in November.

He said Ghana would be the overall beneficiary if indeed the government had constructed roads in those Togolese villages.
