ABSTENTION FROM NEW VOTER REGISTRATION
The wanton disregard for any discourse on the need for the re-registration of the old and obsolete register by the Umbrella group continues to pose serious concerns of as to whether or not the Umbrella group are allergic to the rule of law or have other alterior motive long before this voter registration discussion was birthed.
For the avoidance of Doubt, was it not from this old Voter’s register (2016) that Senior Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, the General Mosquito and rural banker, alleged irregularities at the last held 2016 elections hence the need to regularise the register?
Was it not H.E. John Dramani Mahama, former Government Official one, that alluded that the Electoral Commission of Ghana as an institution was Sacrosanct and very independent from the control from any power that be?
Why then the sabotage of our beautiful democracy, the name calling and the wearing of the vulnerability tag by the Umbrella Family?
Well, some school of thought have it as a cliche that it is a calculated attempt by the Umbrella family at giving excuses and canvassing the sympathy of the international community of a full and glaring defeat in the upcoming 2020 general elections.
Fast forward, will it be a “3B3KC GOAL DI33, ANKA 3NKC OVER”, strategy to deny Ghanaians their civic responsibility and democratic right.
Be it Justified , was it not the old register that elected the government of the day victorious in excess of 1 million votes, hence in whose best interest is it to adopt a new voters register, if there be a connivance with the EC?
I find it uneasy to hypothesize court action, rebel movement and a boot for boot mantra by the umbrella family right after the December polls. May God save us all.
