Don’t be deceived by the NDC, they will register after demonstration – John Boadu tells Ghanaians

The General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, John Boadu, has urged Ghanaians to come out in their numbers when the Electoral Commission comes out with the dates for the compilation of the new register plan in April.

He said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) is known of doing the opposite of what they protest against as most of them would be seen registering during the new voter register compilation hence the need to be ignored.

He said “…As they are demonstrating they are motivating their people to go out there to register and you will see them registering, so the good people of this country should not be deceived by this deception, we are waiting for the Electoral Commission to come out with the days and the plan for the movement.”

He also dared the NDC members to boycott the new voter registration if they are against the compilation.

According to him, elections and registration are not compulsory so the NDC can stay on the old register if they believe the new one is unnecessary and needless.

Speaking ‘Face to Face’ show on Citi TV, John Boadu said “if the NDC believes in what they are saying when it gets to the registration, they should boycott it. It is their right, election or voting is not compulsory in this country, so, as a political party that believes that a new register is unnecessary they should stay on the old register and I advise their people not to register. I think that will show a very principled position and I believe that will serve them well.”
