President Akufo-Addo has dismissed claims by the opposition National Democratic Congress that he intends to disenfranchise eligible citizens in the upcoming voter registration exercise as part of an elaborate plan to rig the 2020 elections.

Addressing the country on Monday, President Akufo-Addo indicated that he is not interested in becoming a President who emerges from a rigged election.

There have been numerous accusations that the President and his government have plotted to intimidate Ghanaians, especially those in the strongholds of the NDC to prevent them from taking part in the voter registration exercise after reports that some military men have besieged the Volta Region ahead of the exercise.

Speaking in the televised address monitored by ABC News however, the Presidential candidate for the governing NPP said he has no interest in winning an election through any foul means.

“I have no interest in disenfranchising any eligible Ghanaian in registering in tomorrow’s exercise, neither am I interested in any improper machinations to win any elections. I’ve spent my life fighting for free democratic institutions in our country and I’ll continue in that fight for the rest of my life. The idea of being a President who emerges from a rigged election is abhorrent to every fibre of my being. I want to continue to be the President of a Ghanaian people who have given meme their free consent with thethe blessing of the almighty.

“So please, once again, if you are 18 years and above and are of sound mind, from tomorrow, go to your polling station and register. If you do not register now, you cannot vote in December,” he stated.
