You no go vote -EC to Diasporians

Why do we make this difficult and blame it on finances. Other countries have done this with no problems and Ghana can do it with no issues. They can do mail in ballots with proof of citizenship attached or have centers in different cities with the representative parties monitoring themselves. Many people abroad will volunteer to work for the polls and know I would if the situation presents itself. I will argue that monitoring system can be implemented effectively abroad that some areas in Ghana. The right to vote and to be involved in the process superceed any moneytary value. If I have to drive or fly to a nearby embassy to vote then I will but the avenue have to be provided. Diasporans can work out the logistics maybe better than those in Ghana. I want my right to vote and this sentiment goes for alot of Ghanaians abroad. We need to bring our prespectives to the debate. Diasporans need to come together on this issue and strike a blow for our voice to be heard. Am sure the USA, the UK and the EU will provide us with a loan in the name of democracy to give a voice to millions of Ghanaian abroad. If the president can take out a loan to fix the flagstaff house then they can do the same by providing some Ghanaians the ability to vote. I want to vote, I want a voice and Ropal should be implementment to give me rights as a Ghanaian.
