General Secretary of the People's National Convention (PNC), Atik Mohammed has ridiculed the party's National Chairman and a leading member of IPRAN, Bernard Mornah for participating in the ongoing new voters' registration exercise.

It could be recalled that Bernard Mornah, prior to the registration exercise, vehemently opposed the Electoral Commission (EC) decision to compile a new voters' register.

He threatened to cause mayhem should the Commission go ahead with the exercise stating emphatically that "people who are already Ghanaians and already registered are going to be taken out of the register, don't you think confusion will come at the registration and if confusion comes there, you think the EC staff will be safe, we will beat each other there, we will kill each other there if that is what the EC wants to lead this nation to''.

However, Bernard Mornah was spotted registering his name during the exercise.

Speaking to host Kwami Sefa Kayi on 'Kokrokoo' on Peace FM, Atik Mohammed asked ''why didn't he disrupt it like he promised he would?''

He fired salvoes at Bernard Mornah saying ''you know when the Electoral Commission says we should register, you'll register your name and also nothing will happen. Why would you create such a tense atmosphere? You contaminate the political atmosphere with all your vicious utterances, such vile utterances. The antidote for that poison would be maybe some counter-reaction that, at the end of the day, will not end well. So, why do you even start such a thing in the first place when you know you will register your name?"

''He was busy enjoying the registration process. If you look at his picture, you'll see everything was smooth where he registered. It was smooth. It was seamless as a matter of fact," Atik teased the PNC Chairman.
