It said” the perpetrators have resort to using every imaginable tactic to disenfranchise those they suspect would not vote for them.

“One of the methods being employed recently is the use of uniformed women who enter people’s houses, lure residents with financial and other inducements, collect their voter cards and apply unidentified means to deactivate the cards on election day”, Danchadi explained.

The party, however, stressed that no citizen of voting age should be denied his or her God-given right to vote.
