He went there and was told to wait for some orders above,” he narrated.

“Prior to the elections, we blasted dynamite in parts of the Volta Region, and that scared a number of people. When I finished casting my ballot in Tema, I drove to the Volta Region, and when I asked for the number of people who had voted and the expected number of voters, it turned out people did not come out to vote,” he said.

The movement fir Change leader was accompanied by the former national Orgainsier of the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoa, Abubakari Saddique, ken Kuranchie amongst others.
