Akyem Sakawa Saga: Apologise Or Be Banned From Campaigning On Our Land – Akyem Chiefs To Mahama

Published

on


The Chiefs and people of the three Akyem states, Abuakwa, Kotoku and Bosome have issued a one-week ultimatum to the flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, to retract and apologise to Akyems for the “Akyem Sakawa Boys” tag or be banned from campaigning on any Akyem land.

To the Akyem natives who took to the streets of Asamankese to demonstrate today, September 9, 2020, such ethnocentric statements from the former president and his party folks can throw the nation into chaos if not condemned by all Ghanaians.

Archibald Ntiriakwa, the president of Okyeman Youth Association and one of the convenors of the demonstration called on Mr. Mahama to retract and apologise in his own interest.

The Anum Asokwahene, Barima Asuokwasi Mensah Bediako Ill, also gave the former President and the NDC an ultimatum apologise or be banned from campaigning on Akyem lands.

“We are all one before individuals… we don’t want politics that emphasises our differences and where we come from.”

“We are not doing politics here. What is paining me is that the Chairman of the NDC is from Akyem land,” the Anum Asokwahene stated.

Why Only 8 Days? – NDC Questions Duration Of EC Voter Exhibition

Published

on


The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has slammed the Electoral Commission (EC) over what its describes as short duration for the exhibition of the new voters’ register.

According to the party’s Director of Elections, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, duration is woefully inadequate for such an important exercise which forms part of preparation for this year’s elections.

“The exhibition of the voters register is a critical aspect of our electoral process. It is through the exhibition exercise that citizens who register get the opportunity to confirm that their names and other details are duly captured on the voters roll such that they will not be disenfranchised on voting days.

“In view of the importance of the exercise, the exhibition duration in that past being between 11 to 21 days.

“In 2012 the exhibition was eleven days. Even in 2016 where only a limited registration exercise was conducted in preparation for that election the duration for the exhibition exercise was 21 good days.

“Unfortunately, with the 2020 registration exercise that was characterized by various anomalies, violence and chaos and also involving close to 17 million prospective voters the EC rather strangely announced an 8-day exhibition exercise.”

Mr. Afriyie Ankrah spoke at press conference in Accra on Monday, September 21.
