The National Chairman of People’s National Convention (PNC), Mr Benard Mornah has said he’s not prepared to make changes on pronouncements he made against the Electoral Commission (EC) deemed to be threats. He added that, he still stands by his words.
His assertion was according to an investigative caution statement which he was made to write.
Invitation letter dated Thursday, May 28, 2020 asked the PNC National Chairman to report to the CID headquarters with regards to some comments he made relating to the controversial issue of the Electoral Commission’s compilation of a new voters’ register.
He was charged and granted bail to report to the CID headquarters every two weeks. This was after his bail condition of one surety was signed by the Greater Accra Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Mr Bala Maikankan.
However, Mr. Mornah says he see nothing wrong with his comments and would stand by it any day.
“If the EC proceeds with the new voters register it will exclude over 10 million Ghanaians from the register,” he said.
Voting, he explained was a fundamental human right and therefore the right to be on the voter’s register must be the priority of the Electoral Commission “but if the EC by its own handiwork decides to exclude people from the voter’s register they are subverting the will of the people and that will amount to attacking the spirit of the constitution.”
He said “any attempt to attack the constitution must be resisted. I intend to offer my life in that resistance because I will resist to defend the constitution of Ghana. I am fully committed to the letter of every word I spoke.”
