Ghana: CSO leader calls for postponement of November election

According to him, that will enable the country get the national database right. He made reference to neighboring Nigeria which did same for a proper voter database and succeeded.

In a short e-mail message sent to News Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe indicated that “Our current electoral woes are symptomatic of the current outbreak of the Zika disease, and that has forced a scientifically backed decision to postpone the Olympics. Postpone the Ghanaian elections and let’s get the database right else there is likely to be chaos.”

He said, postponement of the elections will avert any possible chaos that may arise as result of the ‘tainted’ electoral roll that would be used for the elections.
