The Volta Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has advised his fellow patriots not to deviate from the agenda of ensuring the compilation of a credible voter’s register.
Makafui Woanyah, therefore, implored patriots assigned roles in the upcoming voters’ register exhibition exercise to ensure the names of challenged and disqualified registrants are expunged from the electoral roll.
Speaking at the short ceremony to inaugurate the Volta Regional Campaign Committee in Ho, Woanyah said, ”when the EC starts the exhibition exercise, we are to scrutinise every detail, because we know that we challenged some registrants, but it is also possible that they can still be included in the register.”
He, therefore, directed the officers who represented the NPP on the Review Committee to make available the list of challenged and disqualified registrants to enable the executives and electoral area coordinators to identify such names and have them deleted from the voters’ register.
He, however, commended the NPP hierarchy in the Ketu South Constituency for doing exceedingly well by preventing ”foreigners from registering” during the just ended voters’ registration exercise.
Mr. Woanyah who Chairs the Volta Regional Campaign Committee opined that the NPP would achieve it’s objectives in the December 7 general elections, if it harnesses the right mindset, approach, and strategy during the campaign period.
The NPP National Organiser, Sammi Awuku, applauded efforts of the governing party’s secretariat in the region in ensuring the provisions of the Constitution Instrument 126 was complied with during the voters’ registration exercise ”even at the peril of your lives.”
He, nonetheless, expressed disappointment at the NDC framing ’the right doings of the NPP as tribal bigotry’ and an attack on people of the Volta Region, which he said the opposition party only sees relevant during elections years.
”What suddens my heart is that the NDC only remembers the Volta Region in an election year. You can not pretend to love a woman but only remember that woman in the middle of the night. That is disrespect to the woman”, he said.
”If you love the person, it should morning till evening. It should be throughout your existence when you are in government, the eight years you were in government. But you never remembered this your adorable region but it is time for elections, that is when you remember that you have a covenant with this our beautiful region. Now our [people of Volta Region] eyes open”, he stressed.
He asserted that electorates in the region would vote based on their circumstances and development harnessed in the region time past.
Mr. Awuku also implored the campaign committee to work assiduously towards securing some parliamentary seats for the governing NPP.
