The former President of the Republic of Ghana and the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress John Dramani Mahama has accused the current President Nana Akufo Addo of using the country’s military in a partisan manner.
According to the former President, the current President Nana Akufo Addo is using the military and his party thugs to stop people from registering in the ongoing Electoral Commission’s voter’s registration excerise and thereby preventing citizens from exercising their right to vote in the upcoming December 7th elections.
John Dramani Mahama in a Facebook post also added that “Executive power must not be used to foment ethnic discrimination and abuse as is happening under Nana Akufo-Addo”
Below is what John Dramani Mahama wrote on his Official Facebook Page
This is not the Ghana our forebears toiled for and built! Each and every successive
President left a peaceful, stable and united
The road President Akufo-Addo is taking our beautiful country through, using the military and party thugs to stop people from exercising their right to register and vote in the upcoming December elections, is dangerous and unacceptable.
There have been many reports and video
evidence, like the one in this post, of the
President’s deployment and discriminatory
use of soldiers to target our brothers and
sisters in the Volta Region and wherever
there are settlements of Voltarians and non-Akans.
Executive power must not be used to foment ethnic discrimination and abuse as is happening under Nana Akufo-Addo. These calculated acts of “dehumanisation,
disenfranchising Ghanaians and stripping
them of their citizenship” must end. They will surely never happen under a new NDC
administration because we will foster a spirit of peace and unity in our nation.
As Commander-in-Chief, I will not use our
military in such a partisan manner to
terrorise our own people, and in matters that are purely civil and dwell in the very heart of our constitutional democracy.
