Former Deputy Minister of Education, Hon. Sam Okudzeto Ablakwa has taken to Twitter to express his satisfaction over the turnout in the contituency he represents, North Tongu.
The National Democratic Congress launched a strong campaign against the Electoral Commission’s decision to open a new register in a series of demonstrations and headed to the Supreme Court to seek redress.
However, the Supreme Court presided by the Chief Justice, His Lordship Anin-Yeboah quashed NDC’s challenge of the CI 126 which makes the National ID and Ghanaian passport as the only legal identification documents for registering people in the new voters’ register.
In lieu of this, the NDC under the leadership of ex-president Mahama has implored its supporters and Ghanaians to go out and register in the 38 days exercise beginning from June 30, 2020.
“Impressive turnout in North Tongu from as early as 5am. Admirable determination. Let’s collectively defend our democracy.” Hon. Ablakwa noted.
