The General Secretary for Tabita Pulakuu International- Ghana Chapter Mr Yakubu Musah Barry said they have observed with keen interest that some people including E.C officials and party executives both in NPP and NDC are preventing eligible to register in the ongoing registration exercise especially in the Eastern Region, Northern Region, Savannah Region, North East and Upper East Region .
“Our attention has been drawn by some of our Fulani communities in part of the country that they are been denied Access/participation in the ongoing voters registration exercise which is has been approved by the supreme court, Electoral Commission and gazetted by parliament.
We’ve been notified that, the requirements are :
- National Identity Card (Ghana card) which is issued by the NIA.
- 2 persons to guarantee for 1 person after filling his or her guarantee form and can do so for 10.
Now as a Ghanaian Fulani who have all this requirements, why should EC or any political party representative deny anyone their civil rights hence disfranchising them? He asked
He added that “despite the press statements that we will sue anybody who will deny our people of their rights and that’s exactly what we are going to do,
We will take them on , be it EC officials or any political party who tries to deny our people” he lamented.
Further thanked E.C officials and party Executives of both NPP and NDC from other regions except the above mentioned regions for their efforts and support to their people.
