Former President Mahama is accusing President Akufo-Addo of deploying military personnel in the ongoing voter registration exercise in a bid to disenfranchise Ewes and non-Akans.

According to the NDC flagbearer, the “discriminatory” use of the said personnel is sending the country on a slippery, dangerous path.

This comes on the back of media reports that some military personnel have been unleashed in perceived strongholds of the opposition party to prevent their supporters from taking part in the ongoing voter registration exercise.

Reacting to the development on his Facebook page, Mr Mahama said “this is not the Ghana our forebears toiled for and built” and added that “each and every successive President left a peaceful, stable and united country.”

“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.”

“There have been many reports and video evidence, like the one in this post, of the President’s deployment and discriminatory use of soldiers to target our brothers and sisters in the Volta Region and wherever there are settlements of Voltarians and non-Akans.”

He also assured the citizenry that brutal use of security agencies will not happen under his watch when voted into power.

“Executive power must not be used to foment ethnic discrimination and abuse as is happening under Nana Akufo-Addo. These calculated acts of ‘dehumanisation, disenfranchising Ghanaians and stripping them of their citizenship’ must end. They will surely never happen under a new NDC administration because we will foster a spirit of peace and unity in our nation.”

“As Commander-in-Chief, I will not use our military in such a partisan manner to terrorise our own people, and in matters that are purely civil and dwell in the very heart of our constitutional democracy.”
