Voters’ register: Youth revolution imminent – Sammy Awuku The National Youth Organiser of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Sammy Awuku is predicting a revolution in the country following calls for a new voters’ register for the nation.
The Electoral Commission, as part of measures to consider the various arguments for or against a new voters’ register, held a two-day forum to receive presentations on the matter.
Unhappy with comments made by the Chairperson of the EC, Charlotte Osei at the forum, Sammy Awuku on his Facebook page wrote:
“By her posture and utterances, the EC boss is setting the stage to deny the youth and the people of Ghana a new and credible voters register for the 2016 elections.”
He further opined that the cost of compiling a new voters’ register is cheaper than the cost of pockets of violence.
“We will not sit down for our future to be toyed with. The cost of a new credible voters’ register is cheaper than the cost of violence. Guess it’s time for the Youth to Arise! We cannot afford to fail the masses in 2016. Youth Revolution imminent,” he added.
Meanwhile, the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) has condemned the comments made by Sammy Awuku.
According to the NDC “any attempt by Sammy Awuku and his Akuffo-Addo led handful of brigands and buccaneers to misbehave; SHALL be met with the due process of law!”
A statement signed by the NDC’s National Youth Organiser, Sidii Abubakar Musah also called on the security agencies in the country to be on full alert.
