JM Breaks Silence; Sends A "Thoughtful" Message To The EC

The Former President of the Republic of Ghana, and the 2020 presidential candidate of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), His Excellency John Dramani Mahama has said that the Electoral Commission (EC) is bent on making the electoral process rather a difficult one for Ghanaians than making it easier for the electorates to partake of national elections.

He said that the Electoral Commission is not only out for that but also appears to ensure the disenfranchisement of the sections of Ghanaian populace at all cost by insisting on the fact that the National Identity Card popularly known as the Ghana Card be used to identify voters in the country.

"The Electoral Commission, instead of making it easy for our citizens to take part in elections, rather takes delight in making it difficult. They appear determined to ensure the disenfranchisement of sections of our population at all costs through a misguided insistence on the use of the Ghana card as the only source of identification for a voter card," Mr. Mahama penned on his Facebook page.

Reactions from Ghanaians indicate that some are in support of the Former President's take on the issue whilst some people think that the Ghana card should indeed be used to make a new registration in order to ensure more transparency in the next general elections.

They expressed confidence in John Dramani Mahama and the NDC's ability to win the upcoming elections saying that they will win by hook or by crook. They also admonished the Former President and the NDC to be extra vigilant in the activities of the Jean Mensa led EC.
