The event was climaxed with a play/drama by the Peace and Civic Education Club of PROSCO. The play was written by NCCE, finalized and directed by Mr. Emmanuel Senyo Kumedzina-Director of The African Centre for Peace Building-AFCOPB. The drama was a move to further inform the people of the likely challenges of the election and how they can be tackled.

Takra- *far right* a leader of an irate youth who were not in support of a particular candidate, led his group to block all route leading to the town preventing vehicles from entering the town, tearing poster of the aspirants and causing confusion in the town. Tsofrobi *far left*- a friend of Takra was not in favour and was educating Takra why he should stop what they were doing.

Takra collected money from almost all the aspirants in the view of campaigning for them. At the end Takra assorted some of the aspirants and was finally arrested by the police during declaration of the results of the polls.
