President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaians above 18 years and of sound mind to turn up in their numbers to participate in the new voters’ registration exercise by the Electoral Commission (EC) which begins today June 30.
“Last Thursday the Supreme Court presided over by the Chief Justice by a unanimous decision by the seven-member panel settled all the issues surrounding the voter’s register and affirmed the right of the EC to proceed with the compilation of the new voters register in accordance with the provisions of constitutional instrument C.I 126. The road has now been cleared for the Electoral Commission to proceed.
I am calling on every member and sympathiser of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and indeed on all eligible Ghanaians no matter what party they belong to, if any, to go out and register and exercise their civic responsibility of 7 December 2020 to elect a government of their choice in a free, fair, peaceful and transparent election” he said at a ceremony by the leadership of the NPP to acclaim him as the party’s candidate in this year’s presidential elections on December 7, 2020.
