National Chairman of the Peoples National Convention, Bernard Mornah says President Akufo-Addo cannot stifle the freedoms the people of Ghana that are granted by the Constitution.
The member of the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voter Register was today questioned by the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service after he made comments on the proposed voter poll registration exercise that put the lives of the staff in danger.
He is on record to have said: “People who are already Ghanaians and are already registered are going to be taken out of the voters’ register, don’t think confusion will come at the registration station and if confusion comes there, you think the EC staff will be safe, we will beat each other there and, we will kill each other there if that is what the EC wants to lead this nation to”.
But addressing his colleagues of the Inter-Party Resistance Against New Voter Register shortly after his release, Bernard Mornah said so far as the Constitution stipulates that every Ghanaian has the right to speak, he will continue to exercise his right to help address the various issues in the country.
An unfazed Bernard Mornah said “Freedom will never fall onto people, people must raise themselves onto freedom. We shall not allow our freedoms in any form to be trampled by any person.
President Nana Akufo-Addo cannot stifle the freedoms that we are granted by the constitution. Those freedoms include the freedom to speak and we will speak. We will dare them and we will speak the truth because at all points in time we must correct the ills in our society which ills if we don’t correct, have the potential of eroding the peace and stability of our nation and therefore this afternoon I have just gone through a cordial process with the Police”.
