Mr. Abu Ramadan, who is the former National Youth Organizer of the People’s National Convention (PNC), has maintained that all efforts by the Electoral Commission to rig the 2016 general elections in favour of President John Dramani Mahama will surely fall flat.
According to Abu Ramadan “whether the EC is chaired by Charlotte Osei or the First Lady, Lordina Mahama, President John Dramani Mahama will surely lose the general election, so they should stop what they are doing and do the right thing”.
Mr. Ramadan has before now, filed a suit at the Supreme Court, praying it to order the EC to validate the voters register. This is because of the long-borne speculations that the register is bloated.
Initially, he wanted the Court to compel the EC to compile a completely new register but considering the time frame, it will be an unreasonable request which will be virtually impossible to actualize.
Speaking to Atinka News, Mr. Ramadan explained that the EC is in the process of exhibiting the voters register “with just some few additions which doesn’t qualify for validation” and therefore accused the Commission of playing on the intelligence of Ghanaians.
Meanwhile, the Supreme Court on Thursday, April 14 2016 adjourned the case for the second time to April 25 because one of the lawyers was indisposed. With the way the matter is being treated there, it is virtually obvious that even the court itself is on the side of the government. The EC herself seems not to be perturbed either.
The silence on the part of the government could just mean that they are seeing all the threats and protests as the barking of a toothless dog. However, we will wait to see what will be the outcome of all these agitations for voters register validation. We’ll also carry you along by keeping you updated with the turnout of events.
