President Akufo-Addo has said as far as he is concerned, no Ghanaian has been prevented from partaking in the ongoing voter registration exercise on the basis of their tribe.

In his view, the ongoing registration exercise has been very peaceful, despite concerns raised by some Ghanaians, including former President John Mahama of alleged ethnic discrimination at some registration centers.

Speaking at Eid ul-Adha Congregational prayer at the Kumasi Central Mosque, the President said, “One thing that excites me most is that the registration exercise in Ashanti region and in the whole country has been very peaceful, I haven’t heard of any person being denied the opportunity to register on grounds that you are not this or that so go we cant register you.”

There have been some reported incidences of some disturbances at specific registration centers in the country.

In one of such reports which has been widely circulated on social media, a man, purported to be a resident of Banda Ahenkro in the Bono Region alleged that some military men have been stationed at their registration center to prevent ‘voltarians’ from taking part of the exercise.

Reacting to the development and other related reports, Former President said, “The road President Akufo-Addo is taking our beautiful country through, using the military and party thugs to stop people from exercising their right to register and vote in the upcoming December elections, is dangerous and unacceptable.”

But speaking to the Muslim community, President Akufo-Addo said there haven’t been any reported discrimination and he ‘thanks God for that.’
