The Chair of South Africa branch of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mrs. Charity Assan, has advised eligible voters who have still not registered to do so before the exercise ends on Thursday August 6, 2020.

She said it was highly essential for any unregistered voter to prioritise his/her registration as a primary civic responsibility to promote Ghana’s democratic development.

In an interview over at the weekend in Sunyani, Mrs. Assan, an astute politician and a founding member of the NPP in South Africa, emphasised voting was a basic human right, and that all eligible voters ought to register in order not to be denied such rights in the impending December 7 general election.

She indicated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s government had brought the nation on the right path of economic growth, prosperity and development, saying Ghanaians could only be “active citizens and not spectators” in the nation’s developmental process if they exercised their voting rights.

“We should be citizens and not spectators by registering in the voters’ registration exercise to enable us all to exercise our civic and constitutional rights as Ghanaians in Election 2020. This is the surest way we can vote and maintain President Akufo-Addo in government to facilitate rapid socio-economic growth and development”, Mrs. Assan added.

She said government had for the past three and half years advanced the nations’ economic fortunes, and that President Akufo-Addo required absolute support from Ghanaians to enable his government to successfully implement her social and poverty interventions programmes to better the lot of the people.

Mrs Assan commended the EC for the registration exercise so far, and therefore called on supporters of the various political parties to eschew violence and support the Commission to generate a credible voters’ register that would subsequently facilitate credible Election 2020.
