The Founder of Ghana Union Movement (GUM),Reverend Christian Kwabena Andrews, popularly known as Osofo Kyiri Abosom,is calling for new voters register ahead of the 2020 elections.
Osofo Kyiri Abosom stressed that, “The electoral register in its current state cannot be trusted in anyway because the register is bloated, incurably and flawed which cannot be relied on for the all-important 2020 elections.”
The new party, Ghana Union Movement, has for its slogan “Arise for Development” argue that a new register is the only way for free and fair elections.
According to the Founder and General Overseer of the Life Assembly Worship Centre in Accra ,”The EC should not be denied the appropriate tools to do a credible job for December 2020 polls, in which he said peace was priceless, hence the need for Ghanaians to rally behind the EC to compile a new biometric voters register,” Osofo Kyiri Abosom exclusively told Kwaku Dawuro on Anopa Nkomo on Accra-based on Kingdom FM 107.7
The NDC says the current voters’ register is credible enough for the 2020 elections, maintaining that “we don’t need a new register for the 2020 presidential elections.”
The EC has justified its decision for a new Voters Register following advice from its Information Technology (IT) personnel and external IT consultants.
It explained that an assessment by the experts revealed that the current biometric register is obsolete, hence the need to acquire a new one.
