The National Chairman of the People’s National Convention, Bernard Mornah, is expected to face the police CID today following alleged threats he made against the Electoral Commission.
Mornah received an invitation from the Police CID to appear for an interrogation today (Tuesday, June 2nd) which he’s chosen to honour.
His troubles stem from comments he made regarding the Electoral Commission’s ongoing voter registration exercise,
Mornah is quoted to have said that they are prepared to resist the registration exercise even if by violence.
“People who are already Ghanaians and already registered are going to be taken out of the voters’ register. Don’t think confusion will come at the registration station but if confusion comes there, you think the EC staff will be safe? We will beat each other there and we will kill each other there if that is what the EC wants to lead this nation to,” Mornah is quoted to have said at a press conference organized by the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Register (IPRAN) on May 26, 2020.
Following his comments, the Police CID sent him an invitation on 28th May to appear before them to assist into investigations on the matter.
Mornah, speaking before meeting the CID, said he sees nothing wrong with his comments and that if they claim it is a ‘threat’ then he might have to bring his English teacher along to explain threats to them.
“I have said that if the Electoral Commission is intending to lead us through this dangerous path, they should know that there will be confusion…It is a caution. If caution becomes threats, I will not run away from it,” he said.
“A caution cannot represent a threat but if they take it as a threat, then I may have to bring my English teacher to tell them that cautions are not threats.
“The EC is slitting our democracy and we must do everything to resist it and we will resist it.” he added.
