The NDC PC for Chiana-Paga is under investigation over the alleged assault of an NPP agent during the just-ended voter registration. Nikyema Billa Alamz, the Chiana-Paga Constituency Parliamentary Candidate for the National Democratic Congress in the Upper East Region, has been accused of physically assaulting an agent of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the recently concluded limited voter registration exercise.

The incident occurred during the voter registration process, where tensions ran high among the agents of the two political parties as they closely monitored the exercise. According to the NPP agent involved, Nicholas Dido Kaba, the NDC was attempting to register unqualified individuals who were not residents of the Chiana-Paga constituency. He added that the NDC’s agents also tried to register underage individuals, and he could not stand by and watch, so he confronted the alleged process.

As the confrontation escalated between the agents of the two parties, Mr. Alamz arrived at the scene. Without much information at hand, according to Mr. Dido, Mr. Alamz began to rain a series of heated slaps on him.

Speaking on A1 Radio, he said the matter has been reported to the Paga police command, and an investigation is underway. However, in response to the allegations on A1 Radio, Nikyema Billa Alamz’s handlers have vehemently denied the assault, labeling it a calculated stunt by the NPP to tarnish his reputation in the area. According to the Deputy Communications Officer of the NDC for the area, Akoriwo Dennis, the NPP agent fabricated the assault story to gain sympathy and divert attention from the alleged voter registration irregularities. He added that the PC was never at the scene at the time of the arguments between the supporters of the two parties and hence could not have assaulted someone, particularly the alleged victim.

The accusations and counter-accusations have added a layer of complexity to an already tense political atmosphere in the country.
