Accra, 26/02/2020: Impeccable intelligence picked up from insiders in the corridors of power has revealed a sinister ploy by the Akufo Addo government and the Jean Mensah-led Electoral Commission to deliberately disenfranchise voters in the strongholds of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the upcoming ill-thought through compilation of a new register. Jean Mensah’s obsession with compiling a new register against reasonable judgment and her stubborn refusal to even engage with key stakeholders in the country’s electoral process, lends credence to this scheme and the fact that Jean Mensah was purposely installed to rig elections.
According to our sources, the modus operandi of the plan is to deploy thousands of New Patriotic Party (NPP) hoodlums, popularly called Invisible Forces, clad in either Police or Military uniforms to NDC strongholds to intimidate and prevent people from voting. The plan is similar to the one rolled out during the Ayawaso by-election during which National Security operatives were sent out to cause mayhem and distract the voting process. Currently, these hoodlums are being trained in some security installations for the task ahead, according to our sources.
An even more disturbing add-on to the new plan is the decision of the government and its security agencies to cause artificial closures of the country’s borders to prevent Ghanaians who live and work in neighbouring countries from registering. Again, the evil agenda will see the puppet Jean Mensah-led EC deploying faulty registration machines to the Volta, the Oti, and three other regions in the North.
Realizing how abysmal his government has been and the overwhelming resolve by Ghanaians to vote him out, the inordinately corrupt and super-incompetent Akufo Addo and his family and friends government are designing all sort of schemes to rig the upcoming general elections.
But we will want to assure Akufo Addo and Jean Mensah that we, the Young Cadres of the NDC together with the millions of suffering young men and women of this country, will resist with our blood any plan to subvert the interest of Ghanaians. If it is Akufo Addo’s plan to illegally entrench himself in power with the help of Jean Mensah, then he should know that his plan has failed.
We cannot allow a few corrupt, thieving family and friends cabal to engage in the wanton stealing of our national resources and then, on top of it, steal the verdict of the people during the polls.
We call on all well-meaning Ghanaians to rise up to national duty to protect and safeguard the democratic path chosen by all and begun by the NDC.
Long Live Ghana
Long Live NDC
Long Live Young Cadres
