A staunch supporter of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the Damongo Constituency of the Savannah Region Mr Abukari Mr Patrorn has lashed out at President Nana Akufo Addo for deliberately making sure many people are disenfranchised by the electoral commission through the sacking of former EC boss Charlotte Osei.
Speaking exclusively to Bole based Nkilgi FM, Mr Patrorn a.k.a “By their Actions” said there is a very big danger looming ahead since many people will not take it easy if they don’t get the opportunity to vote.
He said Nana Addo is likely to plunge Ghana into chaos because the very register that saw him becoming a President is being tampered with passports and Ghana Cards.
Giving an instance, Mr Patrorn said it is he and his wife who struggled to get the Ghana Card with his children still not having the cards even though they have attained voting age.
He said Presidents Rawlings, Kuffour, Mills, Mahama and he Nana Addo were made Presidents with the same register which he Nana Addo is doubting today.
The NDC man said the very day the electoral Commission
conducted the pilot voter registration exercise in all 16 regional capitals in the country, he saw the difference in the cards issued since the Savannah Regional minister’s card was different from the that of the Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for West Gonja and also that of what he was holding.
Mr Patrorn said this made him to confront the MCE who said the cards were not the original but just a trial which he suspected to be the beginning of future troubles.
He said the MCE told him that the essence of the exercise, according to the EC, is to identify problems associated with the new voter register system, as well as its effect under various weather conditions and find ways of mitigating them which he believes is never convincing enough since he sees nothing wrong with the old cards.
