Security has been reinforced in the Bawku Municipality ahead of the 2016 National Democratic Congress (NDC) party primaries.
Besides the Police and the Armed Forces, other security agencies including the Immigration, Fire and Prison services, are also prepared to ensure a free, fair and violent free election.
Chief Superintendent Lovelace Kaletse Tefutor , the Bawku Police Divisional Commander, said this after a two hour meeting with the three parliamentary aspirants of the area.
The meeting was organized by the Bawku Municipal Security Committee to find ways of maintaining law and order during and after the elections in the area.
All the 30 polling stations in the Bawku Central Constituency would be given adequate security and some provision made for the other nearby constituencies including Garu,Tempane,Pusiga, Zebilla and Binduri in the Bawku area.
He called on the people in the area to be law abiding and not to take the election as an opportunity to misbehave; saying the law would catch up on anyone who offends, regardless of their political affiliation.
Mr Sumaila Bielbiel, the Bawku Central Constituency Youth organizer, called on the youth to use the election to strengthen the internal democracy in the party so as to sustain the peace being enjoyed in the area.
He said the NDC was a party of unity and stability and urged the youth to collaborate with the security agencies to ensure peaceful elections. GNA
