Voter Register Discrepancies A Threat To National Peace – Bishop

The diocesan Bishop of Shiloh united church, Effiduasi in the Ashanti region, His Lordship Bishop Dr. Divine Agyemang Badu has beseech former President John Agyekum Kuffour, Jerry John Rawlings and his royal majesty Otumfour Osei Tutu II to show unity before the public to ensure peace in the country.

According to him when the three show unity as one people with a common goal, it will go a long way to protect the peace and will positively help curb the current electoral tension arising on the electoral commission.

“This is the time that, these reputable personalities exhibits their power to speaks and calm the storms blowing against the nation”.

According to his Lordship Bishop Agyemang Badu, the discrepancies over the electoral register are possible threats to disturb the current peace enjoyed in the country.

The opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) petitioned the EC to change the current voter register which they considered bloated.

Former president Kuffour, J.J Rawlings and His majesty Otumfuo on different occasions have expressed their positions concerning issue.

Bishop Divine believes the offices of the former heads of state and the Ashanti kingdom can bring their influence to put an end to the brouhaha.

He said though, God has done His part to ensure peace hence has admonished the people of Ghana should do their parts to bring it into a reality.

He, therefore, advised the EC to be objective to exercise their mandate as entrusted by law without fear or favor.

The respected man of God made this call when in an interview with Modern Ghana about a week prayer program to protect and ensure peaceful elections ahead of the 2016 general poles commencing from 2-9 November at Shiloh cathedral, Effiduasi.

The program, which is under the theme “Give me back my sheep” aims at liberating the captives and seeks Gods Devine interventions during the coming 2016 general elections.

He called on other men of God to pray fervently to protect the country from any curious that could possibly arise in the election.
