STAUNCH QUEENS W/R GEARED UP IN “GET INVOLVED; DUTY DEMANDS” SENSITIZATION
As Electoral Commission draws the curtain down on the Voters’ Registration Exercise, the Western Region Chapter of Staunch Queens once again stormed New Takoradi, a Fishing Community in the Takoradi Constituency in a mop up exercise and to urge people to register as a call of duty.
In their bid in educating the community on the need to register, the Staunch through vigorously sensitization embarked on a door to door campaign to enlightened the remnant of New Takoradi who have not yet registered in the Electoral Commission’s Voter Registration Exercise to do so.
The Queens explained the rationale behind this exercise citing that without registering to acquire Voters’ ID, one would be disenfranchised during any elections to vote. In this, the Queens declared that in order not to be a spectator, but a citizen of Ghana, we must register to get our voices heard in the affairs of the country.
In joining the group was Eric Amissah populary called Okuu Abronye, Polling Station Executive (Youth Organizer, Ahantawest) to show solidarity in this exercise. During his engagement with the community, Okuu Abronye outlined major policies that benefit especially the fishing communities. He added that as citizens who have attained the age of eighteen and above and are of sound mind, it becomes our ultimate and collective call to be involved in the decision process of our country which can be achieved through acquiring voters’ ID and electing of competent leaders at the helm of affairs.
Adding up to the call of being a citizen, the people after thorough education from the Queens were willing to register in this process.
ROUND TWO, GET READY
THE BATTLE IS STILL THE LORD’S
