Our husbands need jobs, not a new register – Hannah Bisiw jabs Akufo-Addo

Dr. Louisa Hannah Bissiw, NDC Women's organiser

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) Women’s Organiser, Dr Hannah Bissiw, has asked President Akufo-Addo to focus on providing jobs instead of pushing for a new voters’ register.

Speaking at a demonstration dubbed ‘Tikusayi’ held in Tamale in the Northern region Saturday, she said, “we need ambulances, we need jobs for our husbands, jobs for our children, and good education for our children.”

The former Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture in the late John Atta Mills’ administration, kicked against the move by the Electoral Commission to compile a new voters’ register which she says is a recipe for confusion.

The peaceful demonstration was held in protest to the EC’s decision to compile a new voters’ register for the upcoming general elections.

All People’s Congress and People’s National Convention, were other political parties who added to the huge numbers of participants present on the Tamale streets, to support the country’s main opposition party, NDC against the EC.

The EC proposed that a new voters’ register be compiled towards the end of last year. 

The voters’ register which will cost the government just over GH¢444million, has been met with great opposition from legislators, civil organisations and minor political parties.
