According the National Communications Officer of the opposition party, Sammy Gyamfi, the decision taken is to enable the Electoral Commission to compile new voter’s register for upcoming general elections thereby the decision is politically motivated.
“The lifting of the partial lockdown by President Akufo-Addo, at a time the country is witnessing astronomical increases in positive COVID-19 cases, particularly horizontal infections, is totally premature and lacks scientific basis.”
“It is clearly a politically motivated decision, calculated to allow the EC the space to undertake its entrenched and illogical determination to compile a new voters’ register for the 2020 general elections and nothing more.”
