Assin North By-Election: Don’t Circulate False Information – Police Warns Public

The police have warned the public to desist from spreading false information on social media as constituents decide on a legislator to represent Assin North in Parliament in today’s by-election.

This caution was given after a meeting between the Inspector General of Police (IGP), Dr George Akuffo Dampare and stakeholders involved in the by-election.

“In this regard, we would like to urge the public to be circumspect in their reportage on the election and avoid circulating false information that has the likelihood to occasion a breach of peace since the police will take the necessary action against anyone found culpable,” the statement said.

It added, “We wish to urge the people of Assin North constituency to go about their normal activities freely, including going out to exercise their civic duty of casting their vote”.

“We wish to express our gratitude to all our stakeholders for their cooperation so far and look forward to the same level of cooperation for the last lap of the election to ensure a safe, secure and peaceful exercise.”

Today’s by-election features three main contestants, with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) candidate Charles Opoku being the number one on the ballot paper, the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG) candidate Bernice Enyonam Sefenu occupying the second position on the ballot, and the National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate, James Gyakye Quayson being the third candidate on the ballot paper.
