The flag bearer of the Social Democratic Front Joshus Osih has criticised the decision of the elections management body Elecam to relocate the polling station of Prime Minister Philemon Yang from his native Oku to Bamenda.

The Prime Minister was spotted voting this morning in Bamenda though at  Up Station after a decision by Elecam to relocate the polling stations of some persons in some parts of the North West Region to Bamenda.

The decision came after the Elecam Divisional head office in Mezam had rejectted an earlier petition to relocate their polling station saying it was not competent to make the decision.

But with the Prime Minister now able to vote in Bamenda instead of Oku where he intially registered, the SDF says it is a serious problem and must be looked into.

“If it is true that the Prime Minister was allowed to vote in Bamenda(instead of Oku), then there is a serious problem,”Joshua Osih told reporters after casting his vote in Douala on Sunday morning.

After voting this morning in Bamenda said it was his right as a citizen to vote and encouraged all registered Cameroonians to go and cast their ballot.
