New Register: 'We're waiting for their worst' - Ken Agyapong dares NDC

MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong

NPP Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong, has said there is no way the country will be thrown into civil war if the Electoral Commission continues to compile a new voters' register amid the coronavirus pandemic.

According to him no one is afraid of Maj. Rtd Osahene Kojo Boakye Djan with his continuous constant threats of civil war and anarchy.

"...No one is afraid of Boakye Djan...if he plays the law will take action . . . let us see the anarchy," Ken Agyapong fired.

"...We will do the right thing for the country, we will go ahead with the voters' register...the NDC is speaking as if they are in power, but they have forgotten that they are not in power...we are waiting for them to destroy this country; we are not afraid of them," said Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyepong.

He was reacting to the controversies surrounding the compilation of a new voters' register and comments by Maj. Rtd Kojo Boakye Djan that there could be civil unrest should the Electoral Commission (EC) continue with the impending voter register compilation.

The Assin Central MP was speaking in an interview with Hello FM in Kumasi.

NPP & EC leading Ghana into civil war

Major Osahene Boakye Gyan (rtd) is warning of impending doom should the Electoral Commission connive with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to rig the upcoming December polls.

The former military officer accused the EC of gradually leading the country into a civil war with its bull-headedness, particularly regarding the decision to compile a new voters register.

If they want civil war, they will get it!

The former military capo strongly held that the country can go to the polls this year without resort to putting together a new register as was done in 2016.

Sounding a note of caution, he pointed out that most electoral disputes in Africa have resulted in civil wars and Ghana is not immune to it, and warned that "should the EC continue to toe the line of their paymasters, it will certainly spell doom for this country."
