‘We will eliminate you’ Manasseh Azure receives death threat after writing an opinion piece on Election 2020

The article headlined, ‘ERRORtoral Commission and Akufo-Addo’s coup d’ tat’, discussed the anomalies with the Techiman South parliamentary results and the denial of the people of Santrokfi, Akpafu, Lolobi, and Likpe areas. The two issues, if not resolved before the constitution of the next parliament, could result in what Manasseh called a “coup against the legislative arm of government”. If condition demands that we eliminate rats like you, we will not relent on our oars to do exactly that.”We are monitoring the present situation in the country very closely, and when it gets out of hand we will move in swiftly to ensure that we eliminate you to bring finality to these brouhaha going on”.
