Voter Registration: Go Out And Register – Frema Opare To G …
The Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei Opare, has urged the need for every Ghanaian who has or will attain voting age to endeavour to register when the Electoral Commission (EC) commences the compilation of a new voters’ register for the 2020 general election.
She stressed that, it is more of a ‘civic duty’ than just a ‘mere event’ for eligible voters, as the process would enable the electorate to choose the person and persons they want to manage the affairs of the nation on their behalf.
Addressing the media after registering at the Presby JHS 2 registration centre at Abotsiman in the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency, Ms Frema Opare, herself, a former MP for the area, said the exercise has been smooth with all the safety protocols put in place.
“When you get here, you realise that everything is going on smoothly. It took me less than 10 minutes to get my ID card. With this, I am legally mandated to be able to vote for Nana Akufo-Addo as President and Lydia as MP”, she said to a rousing laughter from some potential registrants at the centre.
“When Akufo-Addo implemented the free SHS, he did not say we were piloting it to benefit a few Ghanaians first, he boldly implemented it to benefit all Ghanaians. NABCO is not meant for a selected few. This is the kind of government that Ghanaians need. A government that takes care of all” she stated.
“When you listen to the testimonies of people about the free SHS policy, you realise the impact it is having on the whole country. We must all ensure that this government is given another four more years to do more,” she added.
