– There is a furious discussion with regards to whether Ghana as a nation needs another voter’s register in front of the 2020 general election.
– I will continue to say this over and over again that the electoral commission’s determination to do this does not make any sense to me
Against this setting, Ghanaian entertainer Lydia Forson has joined the discussion and given her opinion in an announcement sighted iGosip.com
As indicated by her, the assurance of the Electoral Commission’s to incorporate another voter’s register by snare or criminal is silly.
Lydia Forson expressed that she was unable to understand why the activity must go on particularly when the COVID-19 cases are on the ascent. She likewise asked why as a nation a portion of the pioneers was happy to put the lives of millions in danger.

I will continue to say this over and over again that the electoral commission’s determination to do this does not make any sense to me. Perhaps I’m not as knowledgeable in this field and you’re free to educate me, but all I see is peoples lives being put in danger over something we don’t necessarily need. COVID19 is still living and growing with us, we don’t have vaccines or confirmed treatment, and although I don’t believe our lives should stop because of it, it’s also a period to make adjustments to survive it.
This isn’t an exercise of a few hundreds of people if it were I’d trust that it wasn’t going to ask risk, but this is for millions of Ghanaians and there’s absolutely no way people safety can %100 guaranteed.
The election in itself is one we’re going to have to take even more precautions and not many would want to put their lives at risk if we don’t have a vaccine by then. Asking people at this period to register and then come back later to queue again to vote is really unfathomable.
I wouldn’t have too much of an issue if this process was going to be as seamless as it looks in these pictures; but we all know what it was like to even register for the National Identification Card, how stressful it was, the complications, waiting and toss around.
It’s almost like we don’t have a choice at this point, if you don’t go and register, you can’t vote, if you do, you could be putting your life at risk. How do I let my loved ones with underlying health issues do this, especially at a time when we’re recording more numbers.
Please don’t come and do NPP/NDC in the comments either- we’re tired. I genuinely want to understand why this is absolutely necessary, I really do. So let me hear from you.
