President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo Monday stated that he had no motivation to deny any eligible Ghanaian the inalienable right to register and vote.
Thus, all qualified citizens must avail themselves of the voter registration exercise that commences Tuesday, June 30, 2020, to ensure that the country gets a register fit for purpose for the conduct of the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections.
“I have no interest in disenfranchising any eligible Ghanaian from registering in the exercise, nor am I interested in any improper machinations to win any election,” he said in a national address ahead of the commencement of the compilation of a new voters register by the Electoral Commission.
“I have spent my life fighting for free, democratic institutions in our country, and I will continue in that fight for the rest of my life.
“The idea of being a President, who emerges from a rigged election, is abhorrent to every fibre of my being.
I want to continue to be the President of a Ghanaian people who have given me their free consent, with the blessing of the Almighty,” the President stated emphatically.
