UWR: NPP urges youth to participate in new voter registration exercise

The youth wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Wa Central constituency has urged the youth to participate in the forthcoming new voter registration exercise set for June 30, 2020.

With the Electoral Commission (EC) facing strict opposition after declaring its intention to compile a new voters register, the Wa Central NPP begun a sensitization drive to mobilize the youth to embrace the EC’s decision.

Speaking at a press conference, the Constituency Youth Organizer, Hanif Jaoto, said “I want to make a passionate appeal to my constituents, most especially our party people to go out in our numbers to actively take part in the registration exercise when the time comes.”

“Possessing the new ID card guarantees our voting right and as party people, we must have the ultimate responsibility to ensure that our voting right is guaranteed in order for us to give yet another resounding victory to our President Nana Akufo-Addo.” he added

The statement went further calling on the youth to give President Nana Akufo-Addo a second chance to build a more fulfilling future for the country.

He accused the General Secretary of NDC, Johnson Aseidu Nketiah of inciting the populist against the electoral commission.

“It is obvious that the general secretary of the NDC was rather doing a greater disservice to the people to the people of the Upper West region by selfishly inciting them against the electoral commission on the of his visit” he indicated

The Electoral Commission (EC) has set June 30th, 2020 to begin the exercise amidst resistance from many Civil Society Organizations     ( CSO) and some political parties in Ghana.

The NDC has challenged the procedure of registration at the Supreme Court and is awaiting a ruling after the case has been adjourned indefinitely.

However, the EC has organized a pilot registration exercise across the country to test its readiness for exercise.
