He said although chiefs have authority over their subjects but can not prevent them from exercising their constitutional rights as a Ghanaians.
Nana Bofo Bene IV, made the call when he was addressing the regional party executives of the New Patriotic Party in the Bono Region at his palace at Dwenim on Monday.
The hierarchy of the New Patriotic Party in the Bono Region led by Kwame Baffoe Abronye DC is embarking on 3 days sensitisation visit to the various paramount chiefs (Nananom) in the region over the new voters registration exercise.
Nana Nana Bofo Bene IV added that, chiefs must be ambassadors for peace and progress and therefore should support the decision of the Electoral Commission (EC) to compile a new voters’ register as enshrined in Article 45 of the 1992 Constitution and refrain from acts that have the tendency of plunging the country into chaos.
Chairman Abronye in his remarks said the new voters register will not disenfranchise any qualified individual but it’s a constitutional mandate which needs to be uphold and therefore Ghanaians should not fall foul to the lies and propaganda of the opposition NDC over the new voters register.
