There is high security presence in the Kwadaso Constituency as the New Patriotic Party (NPP) holds its primary for the constituency, Wednesday.
The primary was held up due to objections raised about the voter album to be used for the election on Saturday.
Four police officers and three military personnel were at the Nsiah Asare Polling Station. Two Toyota Tundra Pickups filled with officers were also patrolling the area.
At an interval of 30 minutes, patrol teams of armed men enter the polling station to monitor happenings. Some officers on motorbikes are also doing the same in other areas.
Another team of armed military men are also on the ground patrolling the polling stations.
Regional Youth Organiser, Dennis Kwakwa who led a three-member committee to resolve issues of the register says the presence of the men is a precaution so nothing untoward happens.
“You know it is the only constituency pending so we expect a lot of people to come in to support their friends so this is only to keep call here”.
The revised album has 390 delegates compiled with directions from the party at the Regional level.
According Mr. Kwakwa the committee had to review the directives to suit the challenges on the ground.
Two people namely Dr Kingsley Nyarko and Vincent Frimpong Manu are contesting incumbent MP Dr S. K Nuamah.
He beat the Agriculture Minister, Dr Afriyie Akoto in 2015 to contest the parliamentary seat in 2016.
The primaries then had the two candidates contesting as well as the first MP for the constituency carved out of Bantama, Hilda Addo, who was disqualified for this contest.
The disqualified aspirant was in parliament for one term.
