Ashanti Regional Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) Sam Pyne has sent a strong warning to Ghanaians who do not want to partake in the registration exercise emphasizing that ‘if stupid people go and vote for a useless government, everyone suffers.
This is a reaction to the main opposition National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) advice to Ghanaians to abstain from registering their names.
Recall that the Chairman of the NDC, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo on the party’s 28th Anniversary on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, charged the members to reject the call to partake in the mass voters registration exercise which set to commence on 30th June 2020.
“We say no to the new register and even if Parliament passes the legislation we will not accept it. We are not just against it because they will not accept the old voter card but because the whole atmosphere in the country is not conductive” Samuel Ofosu Ampofo said.
Ex-president and the flagbearer of the NDC, John Mahama during the ceremony also said that he wishes that peace prevails and the electoral process proceeds but the party will never accept the results of flawed elections.
“As a leader of the NDC, I wish to serve notice that we shall do all our parts to ensure that our country remains peaceful and that the electoral process proceeds smoothly, but let nobody assume that we will accept the results of flawed elections” John Mahama asserted.
Sam Pyne responding to the NDC’s comments concerning the new voter’s registration exercise in an interview on Peace FM advised Ghanaians not to heed to the comments by the NDC to abstain from registering their names emphasizing that ” if stupid people go and vote for a useless government, they will enact useless laws for you the wise person but should there be a good government to establish the right laws, you will equally benefit. So, from 30th June, everybody should go and write their names”
