Alan's polling agent Ali Zakaria brutally assaulted

A polling agent for the Alan Kyerematen campaign Ali Zakaria is battling a severe eye problem after being assaulted in the North East Regiion during the just-ended Super Delegates Congress.

Doctors say his pupil had shifted its position.

Ali Zakaria was allegedly hit in the right eye at the region's polling centre and had to be taken to the Baptist Medical Center (BMC) for immediate treatment.

Although the regional branch of the party has downplayed the incident Nyamah said police looked on unconcerned when Zakaria was being assaulted.

"If the party wants us to trust the security systems they put in place, they themselves have to show leadership. Don't gang up against one candidate or the other candidates and expect us to trust the process. It ain't gonna happen. Not anymore," Richard Nyamah was firm.
