Residents of the Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) traditional areas have reminded the Electoral Commissioner to quicken efforts to restore their electoral rights.

In a statement issued by the Office Of The Joint Steering Committee (JSC) of the Lolobi and Akpafu Traditional Areas, the residents said, following earlier protests on their exclusion, they were hoping the Electoral Commission would expedite action in addressing their plights.

However, according to them, EC Chairperson, Madam Jean Mensah has failed to heed to their calls, hence their December 6 reminder.

“It has been our expectation that after the said notice, you will take the necessary steps to restore our full electoral rights of citizenship as guaranteed under the Constitution. Sadly there has been no urgency or indication of ethical responsibility to lift the suspension of the Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) peoples’ rights and healing the gaping injury to our representative democracy” the statement said.

According to the aggrieved residents, the “Electoral Commission exceeded its mandate by disenfranchising the registered voters in the Santrokofi, Akpafu, Lolobi and Likpe (SALL) areas, thereby subverting the integrity of our democratic order”.

A year after this development, the residents are therefore calling on the Electoral Commission to address their concerns and restore their ability to vote accordingly.

“We wish to remind and urge you to fulfill your duty by taking the necessary steps to cure this unconstitutional and embarrassing situation which happened exactly a year ago. Every day of inaction is too much a miscarriage of justice. Ghana, including all its people, deserve better!’, the residents indicated.

The statement, which was jointly signed by the co-chairmen of the Office Of The Joint Steering Committee, Seth Owusu and J.K. Addae, was copied to the Minority and Majority Caucuses in Parliament.
