This follows reports that some journalists deployed to cover the proceedings in areas such as Sunyani West and Berekum West in the Bono Region, Shama in the Western Region and Atebubu Amantin in the Bono East Region, were denied access to the venue.

In an interview, Mr OB Amoah argued that the actions of the assemblies are unconstitutional.

“The media should have every right to attend such functions. Unfortunately, I am yet to receive concrete reports from some of these places as to why media persons were prevented. If there are such issues, we should probably receive reports from places like the National Security. But the media should be able to report on some of these things. If they are genuinely prevented from covering such events, then it’s unfortunate because they are all part of the work and play a major role in making democracy work in this country. There is no reason why they should not be allowed to cover such public events to tell the whole world how transparent and democratic the process is.”
