Voters’ register: You don't manage elections - Agyinasare to NDC, NPP

Bishop Charles Agyinasare Bishop Charles Agyinasare

The Electoral Commission must be allowed to do its work and must not be stampeded in taking a decision over the voters’ register, Bishop Charles Agyinasare has said.

The founder of Perez Chapel International said it is the Charlotte Osei-led organization which is in charge of organising elections in Ghana hence what the two major political parties say does not matter.

“The EC manages our elections,” Bishop Agyinasare was emphatic on Starr Chat with Bola Ray, Wednesday.

“The National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) don’t manage elections. So what they are saying does not matter to me.”

He added: There is so much about the voters’ register. I don’t want it to be looked at with political lenses. I think we should go into it very well and think through it. It’s a very expensive exercise, however, I’m not saying it shouldn’t be done.”

Bishop Agyinasare noted he is apolitical.

“Years ago some said I was NPP… sometime later they said I was NDC… then Kufuor honoured me with a member of the Volta and they said I’m NPP. He invited me to the Castle during the Ivorian crisis because he knows I was a friend of Gbagbo,” the father of three said.

Agyinasare who was ordained as a missionary in 1981 received a national award – the Member of the Order of the Volta (MV) – in 2007 by former President John Agyekum Kufuor, for his outstanding achievements in championing African excellence as a religious leader.

He was recently awarded The Global Leadership Award from Regent University, USA by Professor Clifton Clarke in recognition of his efforts in raising leaders across the world and for his impact across the globe.
