While condemning the utterances described as unfortunate, the youth wing succinctly stated that “no political party including the NDC can cause any form of disruption to the mass registration exercise in any of the centers in the Eastern region. That the youth in the eastern region shall, in the spirit of the 1992 constitution, resist any attempt by the NDC, its assigns or any organized group to disrupt or truncate or compromise or halt the registration exercise of the EC in any part of the region.”
The statement further added that “every qualified Ghanaian in the Eastern Region should rest assured that their health, security, and safety would be guaranteed throughout the entire exercise as enough measures have been put in place to permit incident-free exercise in the region.
Adding that “every Ghanaian qualified to be registered per the laws of Ghana, is entreated to go to their various registration centers created by the EC in order to have their names captured in the register.”
The Youth wing commend the youth in Eastern Region for their resolve to perform their civic responsibility by availing themselves to register in their numbers and vote for H.E. Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo comes 2020 general elections.
“We, the youth, owe this generation and that to come, a sacred duty to keep Ghana on this very progressive and sustained development trajectory by keeping the NPP in power for a very long time. Therefore, the life-changing Free SHS policy, Trainees Allowances,
NABCO, One District One Factory, One Million per Constituency, accelerated Job Creation programs, and the many far-reaching policies of the NPP government shall be protected through the ballot.
The statement concluded that “we would not let our guard down for the naysayers, pessimists, corrupt and incompetent NDC to creepily rob us of the promising future. The youth in the Eastern Region shall cooperate with the EC and all stakeholders in every step of the process to compile the new register and offer the appropriate support required of us.”
