NDC’s Communication officer Sammy Gyamfi claims the NPP is promoting tribal discrimination, lawlessness and divisiveness at various polling stations amid the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.
Speaking during a weekly press briefing on Tuesday, he stated that “what is happening is shameful and totally reprehensible, and has the potential to plunge our beloved country into civil unrest if not halted.”
Highlighting some of the unrest, Mr Gyamfi named the Banda Constituency, the Central Region, Ketu South Constituency, Ahafo Ano Constituency and the Oti Region as places whose residents are being intimidated by the military.
According to him, about 17 people in the Oti Region, by their checks, were not allowed to register because they could speak a bit of French.
Mr Gyamfi stated that it is unfortunate the President insists there has been no unrest at these places even with pictorial evidence making rounds on social media.
“We unreservedly condemn the misuse of the military, police service and other security services to intimidate and harass innocent citizens in the ongoing voter registration exercise.”
“We wish to remind President Akufo-Addo that Ghana remains a unitary state, and that Ghanaians must continue to be united by a common destiny and not by tribal or ethnic cleavages.”
Mr Gyamfi claimed that numerous Ghanaians have not been able to register although the registration is in its final phase.
He charged traditional leaders, the media and all Ghanaians to speak out against the discrimination they claim is happening accross the country.
“Ghana is a peaceful country. And we all have a duty to God and country to speak up against the shameful culture of tribalism, ethnocentrism, divisiveness and lawlessness that President Akufo -ddo is gradually normalizing and entrenching in our body politics.”
