The Coalition of Volta Youth is threatening to head
to the law courts over what they described as vote rigging in the referendum on
the creation of the Oti Region out of the Volta Region.
The Chairman of the interest group, Simon Agbekoenyegah, told Adom News their decision to take a court action was informed by videos circulating on social media showing persons thumb printing multiple ballot papers in Thursday’s referendum.
He said they have strong indications the alleged
electoral fraud incidents occurred in the Oti Enclave in the northern territory
of the Volta Region.
