Shama NPP delegates yesterday, April 28, 2022, threatened to boycott the constituency elections for non-payment of transport fares by party executives.
The process was halted for about an hour and not even the intervention of the Member of Parliament calmed the nerves of the angry delegates.
Skyy Power FM’s journalists were there to monitor the atmosphere as they were later sorted by the party executives before the voting continued.
Some of the delegates told Skyy News, “This is our time and we intentionally did that because when we vote for them that is all you will never see them again,” a polling station coordinator said.
According to what was witnessed, voting was peaceful with a heavy security presence led by the Western Regional Police Commander.
