National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammi Awuku has urged the opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC) to stop campaigning against the compilation of the new voters’ register and rather focus on the way forward.
According to Sammi Awuku whether the NDC likes it or not the Electoral Commission will go ahead with the exercise and the earlier they psych their members to take part the better.
The National Organiser of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) was reacting to news report that some members of the opposition NDC took part in the Electoral Commission’s pilot voter registration exercise.
Subsequently, the NDC issued a statement indicating that they gave directives to their members to take part in the exercise.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) is participating in the Electoral Commission’s (EC) pilot voter registration exercise which commenced on June 2, 2020.
In the statement signed by its Director of Elections, Elvis Afriyie-Ankrah, the NDC directed “five persons including two Regional Executives, two persons of the Regional directorate and an IT personnel to attend.”
“Attendants are to observe the following: the time it takes for a voter to go through the registration process, the process of guarantorships and the time it takes,” it further directed.
Speaking to Maame Biamah Kwafo on Neat FM’s ‘Me Man Nti’ programme, Sammy Awuku said: “my fear for the NDC is how they can turn back the hands of time; time is not on their side and the earlier they join this course the better for them…”
