[VIDEO] Akua Donkor declares support for “daughter” Jean Mensa; backs call for new voters’ register.

Founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), Akua Donkor has declared her unwavering support for the Chairperson of the Electoral, Mrs Jean Mensa on the commission’s decision to compile a new voters’ register.

In her view, the need for a new voters’ register for the 2020 general elections cannot be belaboured, hence her support for the project.

The decision by the EC to compile a new voters’ register has been met with unyielding opposition particularly from the Interparty Resistance Against New Register which has vowed to do all it takes to ensure the move does not materialise.

The group, largely dominated by members of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), true to its words, has embarked on a number of demonstrations and organised several pressers all in a bid to get the decision annulled.

The EC, on the other hand, will not waver in its decision to compile the register insisting, it is the best way for credible polls in Ghana.

Speaking to ABC News on the sidelines of Ghana’s 63rd independence anniversary in Kumasi Friday, Akua Donkor forsook her “dear” NDC to join the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) to support the “all important” new register.

The “once sworn enemy” of Akufo-Addo lauded the President for ushering in Mrs Jean Mensa as the Electoral Commissioner, expressing her adoration for the EC boss.

“I am a mother to all parties, whether NPP or NDC. But I support who is doing the right thing. Just like Jean Mensa is doing the right, she has my blessing, I am in full support of what she is doing.

“I thank Nana Addo for bringing Jean Mensa,” she intimidated.

To her, not only is the President creating jobs but “he has also provided opportunities for a lot of women, I am really grateful to him.”
