John Dramani Mahama, former President and flag bearer of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) have accused the Nana Addo led government of intimidating registrants…
In a statement that was released on the first day of August, Mahama accused Akuffo-Addo of using the military to prevent people from registering in places like the Volta Region.
According to him the military presence is to intimidate non-akan voters.
“Each and every successive President left a peaceful, stable and united country”.
.“The road President Akufo-Addo is taking our beautiful country through, using the military and party thugs to stop people from exercising their right to register and vote in the upcoming December elections, is dangerous and unacceptable”.
“Executive power must not be used to foment ethnic discrimination and abuse as is happening under Nana Akufo-Addo”.
“These calculated acts of ‘dehumanisation, disenfranchising Ghanaians and stripping them of their citizenship’ must end”, he insisted.
“They will surely never happen under a new NDC administration because we will foster a spirit of peace and unity in our nation”.
“I will not use our military in such a partisan manner to terrorise our own people, and in matters that are purely civil and dwell in the very heart of our constitutional democracy”.
