NPP to engage services of “macho men” to every single polling station to police ballot boxes on voting day.
According to the NPP’s Northern regional chairman, Daniel Bugri Naabu, the move will ensure that the party is not disadvantaged by the "naked thievery" that characterised the 2008 and 2012 elections respectively.
Mr Naabu who was addressing a rally at Savelegu at the campaign of the party’s parliamentary nominee, Mohammed Abdul Somed Gunu Saturday said the NPP would protect the sanctity of the election through its deployment of the 40 well-built men.
“... So on December 7, get some young and strong men about 40 to guard the box and if the thieves come to snatch away the boxes break their legs. You were witnesses to the Supreme Court ruling, would you allow them to steal again? If they steal again we are dead so this one is do-or-die. Don't agree! If they are not afraid of guns and cutlass we are also not afraid,” added Naabu.
