Nurses Unemployed And The EC Is Wasting Money On New Register--Agbenyo Fumes
The former Deputy National Communications Officer of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Fred Agbenyo, says the idea by the Electoral Commission’s (EC) to compile new voters register is a complete waste of taxpayer's money.
He stressed that, the EC’s argument of saving the country money with the compilation of the new voters’ register false.
Fred Agbenyo added that” The current register has delivered five (5) successful elections so what prevents the Electoral Commission from using the same old register to conduct this year’s general elections,” Fred Agbenyo exclusively told Kwaku Dawuro on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
” I see no reason for a new voter’s register because is a complete waste of taxpayer's money, we are not able to employ Teachers, nurses, and other civil servants.”
“We have better things to think now, the government should complete the hospitals which was under construction during Mahama’s tenure and stop forcing the Electoral Commission to compile a new register,” he added
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has kicked against the compilation of a new voters’ register for the 2020 general election, claiming that it is a sinister move by the Electoral Commission (EC) to suppress votes in its strongholds and shore up those of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in its strongholds.
The Electoral Commission (EC) says it will compile a new voters’ register for the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections.
