The Upper West Akyem branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Eastern region has warned non-residents in the area not to register for the voter card.
The party says it has invoked curses from the gods in the area to deal ruthlessly with anyone who will register there but is not a resident.
Chairman of the party in the area, Mr. Ken Dadzie told Nyankonton Mu Nsem that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is busing non-residents to the area to register them.
The NDC he said will not entertain this and will go all out to challenge anyone they suspect is not a resident.
According to them, some persons they confronted could not even identify the households they came from.
He warned if those who are allegedly being bused dop not desist from registering in the area, they will invoke curses on them and pray to the gods to deal with them ruthlessly.
"We are advising those who are not residents here not to register. We are invoking the curses on anyone who will make the attempt and ask the gods and rivers in this area to strike dead anyone who will register here but not a resident. We have informed the police but nothing has been done. If they do not stop, then the only we can say is that may the gods strike them dead. If you are a resident here and you register, we do not have a problem, but if you not then we leave you to the gods,” he added.
Responding to the allegations, the NPP chair for the area, Mr. Nana Addai Obuobi denied busing people to the area.
He said the party has done no such thing and has asked the public to disregard the allegations.
He appealed to residents who are far and near to take part in the registration exercise so they can vote in 2020.
"If you are abroad and a resident of Upper West Akyem and you can join those are being evacuated by the government please come back home and register so you can vote. I have not bused people here. All those who have registered here are residents,” he stated.
