Social commentator and youth activist, Ivan Innocent Kyei, has asked the government not to manipulate the Electoral Commission in the discharge of its mandate.
He says Ghana being the beacon of democracy in Africa should ensure that the processes leading to the 2024 elections are fair, free and transparent, devoid of machinations that can potentially damage the political integrity of the state.
According to Mr. Kyei, the hard economic conditions currently confronting the state makes many see the 2024 elections as a time of regaining independence from the jaws of corrupt leadership, the reason the processes must be fair for all.
His Tuesday, September 12, 2023, comments on Maakye come on the back of the ongoing limited voter registration restricted at the district offices of the EC despite calls by various stakeholders to expand the centres.
“There are a lot of people who see the next election as some kind of independence Ghana is seeking from the jaws of some individuals who are so corrupt to the extent that they came purposely to rob this particular country. So as a government, you do everything to ensure that you’re not weaponising the Electoral Commission,” Mr. Kyei indicated.
