Confusion over position of signboard at polling station in Tema


There was confusion between the supporters of the ruling National Democratic Congress and opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) at the Ibaadu Rahman Islamic school B polling station in the Tema West Constituency over the position of a signboard.

The signboard in question belongs to the NPP’s parliamentary candidate for Tema West Constituency, Carlos Ahenkorah.

The confusion started when the NPP agents decided to cover the signboard which according to the NDC party agents was too close to the polling station – less than 500 meters instead of taking it down.

In the end the police and presiding officers around asked that it be taken down.

Calm has since been restored.
