NPP executives curse Ivorians crossing border to register

Members of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) at Dormaa Central in the Brong Ahafo Region have reportedly asked the gods of their ancestors to strike down any Ivorian who crosses the border to take part in the ongoing limited voter registration exercise.

This follows allegations that the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) is transporting Ivorian nationals through the border town of Badukrom to register ahead of the Novembers polls, a report by atinkaonline said on Friday.

Constituency executives in the area are said to have petitioned the gods on Wednesday, calling on them to deal with any non-Ghanaian who crosses the border to register.

They specifically called the gods of Kumor river, which serves as a boundary between the two countries, to kill or drown any Ivorian who crosses the border to register, the report said.

They were said to have further asked the gods to also deal with persons who attempt to bus people from Ivory Coast to come and register.

After the traditional act, the party will proceed to Ivorian communities to inform them about the curse in order to put fear in them, the report added.
