Residents of the Bimbagu South electoral area in the Bunkprugu/Nakpanduri constituency of the North East Region have boycotted the 2020 Ghana presidential election citing the failure of successive governments to bring developmental projects in the area.
An ARISE News crew monitoring the West African country’s election had reported that some of the polling stations in the area witnessed electoral officials sitting idle with no electorate to attend to.
However, some of the residents are seen around the polling centre going about their usual duties.
According to the residents, their reason for boycotting this year’s elections is because successive governments have sidelined the area in terms of developmental projects.
The residents also complained about bad roads, lack of potable water, inadequate educational infrastructure, and no access to healthcare.
In October, the residents as a group organised a press conference where they revealed that they would not part-take in this years’ election after outlining their issues.
True to their word the electorates have refrained from the electoral process.
