Madam Kayisan Aguto, a cloth seller, said: "Any time Togolese are voting, nobody can enter Togo from Ghana or come to Ghana from there. It's a surprise that the border is opened today while they're voting." The various transport stations at Aflao, including the State Transport Company and the Ghana Private Road Transport Union were virtually empty. Mr Kwasi Amedzro, a forex bureau operator, said: "leaving the Togo border open during elections means a wind of change is about to blow over the country."
