We will mobilize Ghanaians to mount pressure on the EC – Sammy Gyamfi

The Communications Director for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi says the Inter-Party Resistance against the New Voters Register will continue to mount pressure on the Electoral Commission. This he says will be done if the EC does not rescind its decision to compile a new Voter’s Register.

The EC has already announced date and modalities for the compilation of a new voters’ register despite a planned meeting between the Eminent Advisory Committee and the Inter Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) scheduled for Thursday to iron out concerns raised over the exercise.

Sammy Gyamfi speaking to Citi News says the EC should prepare for more demonstrations if they do not revoke their decision.

“It is an insult to the EC as a corporate body because it is giving them away as a body which is not interested in protecting the democracy and the strides we have achieved since 1992. They should be prepared for more mass actions. We are not going to stop now. We are not going to give in.”

“We are not going to give up. We know the will of the people is supreme and the will of the people is what will prevail at the end of the day. We are going to occupy the headquarters of the EC and their offices across the 16 regions of the country and we are going to mobilize the ordinary people of this country to mount more pressure on the EC to do the right thing.”

The EC yesterday announced that they have a meeting on Thursday with the Eminent Advisory Committee and the Inter Party Advisory Committee (IPAC).

The Inter-Party Resistance against the New Voters Register have held two demonstrations against the EC’s decision, the first was the ‘Tikusayi’ in Tamale and the other was ‘Yenpini’ in Kumasi.

They then suspended all other planned demonstrations and gave the EC a one-week ultimatum to rescind its decision.

A 66-year-old stool attendant (Ahenkwaa) at the Manyhia palace in Kumasi, has been remanded into prison custody by the Nkawie Circuit for fraudulent land deals.

Nana Yaw Addai was said to have fraudulently forged documents and sold a piece of land at Denkyemmuoso in the Atwima-Kwanwoma District.

The prosecution said a report was made to the Abuakwa police who arrested the accused and in his caution statement admitted the offence and was charged before the court.

Lack Of Funds Cause Of Recent Dumsor – John Jinapor claims

Lack Of Funds Cause Of Recent Dumsor - John Jinapor claims

Lack Of Funds Cause Of Recent Dumsor: Former Deputy Minister of Energy, John Jinapor has disclosed that the challenge with the energy sector has to do with the congestion in the transmission lines and not the generation of electric power.

According to him, the Akufo-Addo government for more than two years has not carried out any maintenance activities and upgraded the transmission system of GRIDCo due to lack of money.

Speaking on Okay FM’s ‘Ade Akye Abia’ Morning Show, the lawmaker for Yapei/Kusawgu Constituency maintained that the current power outage is a result of the high tensions from GRIDCo being congested for over a period of time due to the fact that there are not enough funds to upgrade the system and do maintenance.

“But the truth of the matter in this power outage is that the high tension from the GRID is congested; that is the fact and it has been congested for over a period of time and that is why from time to time, GRIDCo should have money to upgrade their system and do maintenance so that we don’t experience such a situation in the country,” he asserted.

He, however, blamed President Akufo-Addo for the lack of money for GRIDCo to carry out its maintenance policy and upgrading as the President went to Parliament to announce the reduction of electricity tariffs to score political points at the detriment of the utility companies.

“When President Akufo-Addo went to Parliament to say that he has reduced electricity tariffs, the GRIDCo CEO was not happy with the President on that decision because the company needs money to maintain the high tension. The NPP scored political points out of the reduction in the electricity tariffs and Ghanaians were happy but the downside is that the utility companies need money to upgrade their systems,” he indicated.

“Transmission lines do not get congested overnight because the demand will continue to increase and so it has gotten to a point where the transmission lines cannot carry the load again. The only way it will be able to carry the load is to reduce the load on the transmission and if that happens, some people will experience lights-out and that is what they don’t want to do, and so we are experiencing low and high voltage due to the pressure on the transmission lines,” he explained.
