Former president, John Dramani Mahama, on Wednesday 5th August 2020, has gone through the process of registering for the new voter’s ID Card. He registered in Bole, a suburb Savanna Region to register.
The former president made some submissions in his interview with the media.
“Ghana is a nation for all of us notwithstanding your ethnicity or your party affiliation. Sadly, the Akufo-Addo administration is endangering our democracy with dictatorship. A lot of the things that are happening, the closure of radio stations, the harassment of journalists and just during this registration exercise, the alienation of people and questioning their citizenship, the use of the military to prevent people from registering, it all shows a government that is determined to do everything to hang on to power.”
He went on to say,
“President Rawlings ruled this country for eight years and handed over a peaceful and united country to President Kufuor. President Kufuor also ruled for eight years and handed over a peaceful and united country to President Mills. I also took over a peaceful and united country to President Akufo-Addo. So what nation is he [President Akufo-Addo] going to hand over to me when I take over from him in 2020. We will bring back the peace and unity of this country and will make everyone feel that they belong to this country and that some people do not own this country more than others”.
After his registration, he had some interactions with the people and visited a few registration centers in the region.
