Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Free Zones Board (GFZB), Kwadwo Twum-Boafo has hit hard at the New Patriotic Party (NPP) over their request for a new voters' register.
Speaking to host of Peace FM's flagship programme "Kokrokoo", Kwadwo Twum-Boafo warned the NPP to stop deceiving Ghanaians.
According to him, the rationale behind the NPP's call for a new register is to advance the Presidential ambitions of their flag bearer.
He noted that the NPP is earnestly making unwarranted claims so that they can push the "unbridled quest" of Nana Addo "to be President of Ghana at all costs."
Mr. Twum-Boafo described the opposition party's running mate as a "slow-witted" man for leading the crusade for a new register.
“It is about one man’s unbridled quest to be President of Ghana at all costs…Dr. Bawumia has PHD in Economics and so I am assuming that he knows economics. If Dr. Bawumia thinks that he must lead this crusade despite all his education, I’m saying he’s either block-headed or he’s doing it on purpose.”
“Let’s apply some common sense to this argument. If we complain that we were registering 13 and 14-year-olds in 2011, as we speak today, the 13 and 14 year olds; are they not adults? So, why do you want to compile a new register and introduce new children?” he rhetorically asked.
The GFZB Chief Executive advised the NPP to stop calling for a new register and rather follow the laid-down rules to purge the current register of any flaws.
“There’s a mechanism to purge the current register. The processes are there. It’s called complaint (form). Go and challenge it. No, they’re saying that there should be a new register all together so that they can register new minors,” he sarcastically said.
