With the emergence of this letter on social media, many people, especially supporters of the National Democratic Congress believe that this transfer is politically motivated.
According to comments monitored by our News Desk, the transfer was done in anticipation for the Zabzugu Electoral case on the results from the just ended parliamentary elections in the aforementioned Constituency.
The National Democratic Congress demanded a re-collation of the parliamentary results from all the polling stations in that Constituency. This is because the party believes that the candidate representing the NDC in the Zabzugu Constituency has been cheated.
