Ashanti Regional Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has urged all Ghanaians of eligible voting age to participate in the upcoming mass registration exercise by the Electoral Commission (EC).
Sam Pyne advised the citizenry not to pay heed to the comments by the leadership of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to abstain from registering their names.
NDC National Chairman, Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, delivering a speech at a ceremony marking the party’s 28th anniversary on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, charged the members to reject the call to participate in the mass voters registration exercise scheduled to begin on June 30 this year.
“We say no to the new register and even if Parliament passes the legislation we will not accept it. We are not just against it because they will not accept the old voter card but because the whole atmosphere in the country is not conducive,” he said.
The party’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama also warned the EC saying ”as leader of the NDC, I wish to serve notice that we shall do all our parts to ensure that our country remains peaceful and that the electoral process proceeds smoothly, but let nobody assume that we will accept the results of flawed elections”.
Responding to the NDC on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, Sam Pyne sent a strong message to Ghanaians who don’t want to partake in the registration exercise emphasizing that ”if stupid people go and vote for a useless government, they will enact useless laws for you the wise person but should there be a good government to establish the right laws, you will equally benefit. So, from 30th June, everybody should go and write their names”.
