GUM Urges Ghanaians To Register for New Voters’ Card As It Seeks to Take Over From NPP,NDC In the Political Scene

Published

on


The Ghana Union Movement (GUM) has issued a rallying call to all Ghanaians to involve themselves in the registration of the new voters’ card in a show of commitment to national duty.

According to the movement, the registration exercise is a national responsibilty that will deepen the country’s democracy and offer citizens the chance to vote for an alternate party.

Speaking to Ghana News Agency, a Political Scientist for GUM, Rvered L.K.B Trotsky, said the time has come for Ghana to abandon the New Patriotic Party (NPP), National Democratic Congress (NDC) politics and give way for a new party.

He accused the NPP, NDC of corruption under their administrations and abandonment of state enterprises, particularly, those started under the country’s first president, Kwame Nkrumah.

“We are fed up with NDC and NPP deceptions and their failure to fight corruption in the country during their respective terms of office. Both have failed to arrest the growing unemployment and grow the economy,” he added. “We are pleading all patriotic Ghanaians, the intelligentsia and GUM members and supporters to rise up in your constituencies, villages, towns and cities to register for your voter identification cards,” he said.

Rev Trotsky added, “make it a point to register with the Electoral Commission and acquire your voters ID card for the Election Day, December 7…..let’s assist the masses for mass voter ID card registration on the registration day.”

Hon Carlos Kingsley Ahenkorah has admitted touring some registration centers in his constituency to see how the Voters Card Registration exercise was ongoing despite being positive for the Coronavirus.

Mr. Carlos revealed that, he toured the centers on Tuesday, 2 July, to see how preparations were ongoing in the compilation of the new voters register ahead of the 2020 Elections.

“I decided to see how some of the centers were just operating. So, I stepped out into town a bit. It didn’t mean I couldn’t go out. My test results had shown I was positive a week ago and after one week, my doctors said I could step out,” the Deputy Minister said.
“They [doctors] said I could go out, except that I needed to wear my mask and observe social distancing,” the MP further revealed.

He also said he was very mature and careful about his condition.

Earlier, there were claims in the media about the honorable receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit of the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital but he again debunked such rumors and said they were false.

Political Scientist Bemoans Mahama’s Delay In Revealing Running Mate, Says Party Likely to Lose Votes

Published

on


A political science lecturer at the University of Ghana, Dr Alidu Seidu, has bemoaned the delay of announcing a running mate for flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

According to Dr Seidu, the delay in revealing the running mate for John Dramani Mahama can lead to loss of votes for the party.

He made this assertion in an interview with GhanaWeb.

“I do believe that by now the party should have had its running mate. The running mate that they are going to choose is supposed to complement John Mahama’s abilities.

The running mate should have been outdoored so that he or she can also help campaign for votes for the party. The consequence of the delay will be a potential loss of votes for the party,” he noted.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has been teased by his political opponents for failing to select a running mate as the elections draw closer.

Mr Mahama has stated that the Covid 19 is to blame for the delay and he’ll soon make the announcement.

I Am Not In ICU- Carlos Ahenkorah Releases Statement To Refute False Claims

Published

on


There had been news making rounds that the Deputy Minister for Trade and Industry and the Member of Parliament for Tema West Constituency, Hon. Carlos Ahenkorah had contracted coronavirus and currently receiving treatment at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) at the Korle Bu Teaching Hospital.

However, the lawmaker had debunked the rumors saying he was admitted for an overnight check in relation to his COVID-19 status and there was not more to that.

Carlos was said to have been admitted at the ICU with NPP’s Mark Manu immediately after the demise of Sir John.

Mark Manu is yet to respond to the claims.

Below was the statement released to that effect:

I am not in ICU – Carlos Ahenkorah


My attention has been drawn to messages circulating on social media to the effect that I am in ICU after testing positive to COVID-19 sending worrying signals and misinformation to my well-wishers and party faithful.

I must categorically state that I am not in ICU neither am I in Korle-Bu at the moment. I was admitted for an overnight review on my COVID status at the ISOLATION CENTER in Korle-Bu yesterday around 5 pm and discharged at 11 am this morning.

I have not in any way been taking ill or suffer any serious break down to send me into ICU.

I ask all and sundry to disregard this hollow speculation and confirm I’m as fit as I use to be.

Thank you!
