The Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voters Register (IPRAN) has condemned the move by the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service to invite the spokesperson of the group, Bernard Mornah for interrogation over his comments allegedly encouraging violence at registration centers.

According to the Group, they are dismayed by the decision of the police which they allege is an attempt to gag the National Chairman of the Peoples National Convention (PNC) and to intimidate the Coalition resisting the compilation of a new voters register.

A statement signed by the Leader and Founder of the United Front Party, Dr. Nana Agyenim Boateng accused the government of being behind the action of the police to compel them to keep mute over the matter.

“We are appalled by the decision of the CID to kowtow to the whims and caprice of some individuals who have been irked by not just the spirited resistance of Comrade Bernard Mornah in particular but by the Coalition as a whole.

“The Coalition knows that this is a calculated attempt by the Government through the Police to intimidate and cow the Coalition into submission on the heated matter of the compilation of new voters register ahead of the 2020 elections. As a law-abiding citizen and a renowned public figure, the CID should be rest assured that Comrade Bernard Mornah would honor the invitation as scheduled in the invitation letter,” the statement said.

Nonetheless, the IPRAN has served notice that they will remain resolute in their opposition to the exercise by the Electoral Commission.

“Let the Police beware that this is not going to soften the poignant stance of the Coalition on the ill-advised and needless decision to compile a new voters register which is going to disenfranchise a vast majority of the people coupled with the fact that it is at a huge cost to the poor taxpayer.

“The Coalition is solidly behind Comrade Mornah and is even more greatly motivated to scale up the resistance in the interest of a free, fair, credible and transparent electoral process in 2020 and beyond,” it intimated.
