PRESS CONFRENCE ADDRESSED ON BEHALF OF THE ‘INTER-PARTY RESISTANCE AGAINST THE NEW VOTER REGISTER’ ON THE NEED TO RESIST THE REPLACEMENT OF THE CURRENT BIOMETRIC REGISTER FOR THE 2020 ELECTIONS AT THE ACCRA INTERNATIONAL PRESS CENTRE ON MONDAY, 6TH JANUARY, 2020
Good Morning ladies and Gentlemen of the Press, on account of the Inter-Party Attrition adjoin the New Aborigine Annals (IPRAN), you are acceptable to the Accra International Columnist Center. We are beholden for anniversary our invitation.
Today marks the alpha of several engagements with you.
Happy New year to everyone!!!
The Inter-Party Attrition Adjoin the New Aborigine Annals (IPRAN) is a affiliation of some political parties in Ghana, who are bound to avert and assure the candor of our balloter process.
We are actuality to allotment with you our position on the alarm by the Balloter Commission (EC) to abridge a new aborigine annals for the 2020 Accepted Election.
Our accommodation to appoint you is motivated by our acceptance that the ultimate ascendancy of the nation lies in anniversary and anybody of us. The People’s absorption charge consistently administration supreme. Our assurance with you this morning is advised to present to you the acclaimed board of the cloister of accessible opinion, our case for calling for a accumulation attrition to the backup of the accepted Biometric Aborigine Register.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the press, to activate with, let me accentuate the actuality that, a peaceful and acknowledged acclamation is the aftereffect of accord amid all stakeholders. As a adviser it is important to blab how the accepted Biometric Aborigine Annals was acquired in 2012. Afterward the Akufo-Addo led advancement for a biometric voters annals above-mentioned to the 2012 Accepted Elections, the Balloter Commission through the Inter-Party Advisory Committee (IPAC) set up a abstruse aggregation with representation from assorted political parties, to amid added things accede on the abstruse roadmap for the accumulation of the biometric aborigine register. All parties were absolutely affianced and complex in the action from the alpha to the end.
Fast advanced in 2020 we accept absolutely the opposite, President Akufo-Addo is now application the aback aperture to get the EC to bandy abroad a seven year (7yr) old annals and abridge a new one with aforementioned systems. The affidavit accustomed are bizarre.
As if that is not enough, the action to annex and abridge this causeless annals has been buried in clandestineness and characterized by deception, abridgement of accuracy and dis-ingenuity.
Fellow Citizens, Ladies and Gnetlemen of the Press,
On March 27, 2019, the EC arrive political parties to a affair to altercate the afterward issues:
? District Level Elections and Referendum
? Inspection of offices of Political Parties
? Compliance with analysis requirements
After that meeting, the EC issued a communiqué account decisions fabricated afterwards our deliberations. Interestingly, the aboriginal account they abduction was the accumulation of a new biometric voters’ register.
We did not booty this bulk lightly, our accompany in the NDC anon issued a accessible account to abnegate and betrayal the EC for the arrant bamboozlement in smuggling in the anticipation of new aborigine annals into discussions that never acknowledgment same. We subsequently, accepted an alteration of the minutes, which abominably had been accounting to approve the lies told in the communiqué and the corrections were effected.
On 25th November, 2019, political parties were arrive to an emergency IPAC affair to altercate the EC’s programme and the District Level Elections, alone for the EC to already afresh bootleg in the abstraction of the new Biometric Register. Afterwards our resistance, they promised to alarm for a abounding absolute affair to altercate the subject.
On 2nd December, 2019 abundant to our dismay, we were arrive for addition EMERGENCY IPAC meeting. We were afraid how any austere ambassador will adapt two after emergency meetings, but we offered them the account of the doubt. The abstruse aggregation of the EC presented an outline of affidavit why they capital a new register. It agitated on the following:
• The abstracts centermost is outdated
• the biometric accessories BVD is obsolete,
• abstracts chiral arrangement not able (VMS),
• Charge for facial acceptance technology to annihilate chiral analysis (which was 0.6% of absolute registered voters in 2016).
The political parties’ assembly and their abstruse teams responded with some counterfactuals on all the issues raised. The parties argued that all the issues aloft could be bound by advance the accepted Biometric Voters Register, after auctioning the biometric abstracts of voters.
The EC again argued that the bulk of advance the accepted annals was activity to be big-ticket than the bulk of the new system. This generated some altercation which assuredly led to the accord that political parties care to be furnished with some analytical abstracts including appraisal letters and quotations for new biometric aborigine solution. At atomic the political parties actuality present are yet to accept their copies of the abstracts promised by the Commission.
Subsequently, we were arrive to addition affair on 10th December, 2019 at Coconut Groove Hotel, Accra, evidently to abide the altercation area we larboard off the antecedent anniversary (at atomic according to our expectations). We got there alone to be abreast that, four (4) vendors had been shortlisted through a accretion action (which we did not apperceive about) to present a affirmation of their systems and designs. We became heavily affronted and bristles political parties had to date walkout.
The EC in its bid to awning up and becloud the controlling action has resorted to calling alone emergency meetings, aloft emergency meeting, so as to escape the accountability of accepting to revisit affairs and decisions fabricated in antecedent meetings.
Fellow Citizens, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press,
We are anxious about the EC’s acts of bad acceptance and abridgement of accuracy by proceeding with the accretion action of the new register, back discussions had almost began. We are anxious about the complete sidelining and apathy for IPAC. We are acutely anxious about the auctioning of accord architecture in balloter programme accommodation making.
That notwithstanding, the Balloter Commission has afresh acquired approval from Assembly to absorb abutting to GH¢ 833,000,000 to abridge a new annals for the 2020 Accepted Elections. The account comprises of GH¢ 443m (4.43 Trillion old Cedis) for the new Biometric Aborigine Management Arrangement and some whopping GH¢ 390,265,186 (3.9 Trillion old cedis) for the operational bulk of the allotment exercise. Not alone are we clumsy to appreciate why any aborigine can go on this audacious campaign of crumbling the tax payers money, but additionally affronted by the abutment of the clueless majority in assembly led by Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, MP for Suame.
It is the advised appearance of the Resistance, that the altercation adduced so far by the EC and their assigns, do not argue a fly on the charge to absorb abutting to a billion Ghana Cedis on new aborigine register. Thus, I say to you verily, that the success of our attrition to the accumulation of the annals will crop accumulation of abutting to about bisected a billion Ghana Cedis of the tax payer’s money. This money can be acclimated to body roads, schools, hospitals, factories and added amusing projects.
Fellow Citizens, the government is acknowledging the causeless bulk of this GHC 833 million, at a time back farmers are crying, fishermen are crying, amber farmers are crying, agents are crying, nurses are crying, contractors are crying, drivers are crying, businesses are collapsing, and acceptance are accident hope. The teachers, nurses and contractors are arrant because they are owed huge arrears of allowance and entitlements by the state. The drivers are arrant because the abiding increases in ammunition prices are active them out of business. The farmers are arrant because they cannot acquiesce the accretion bulk of agronomical inputs.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Media, Adolescent Citizens
At this point let me advance to accord with their capital arguments so far. They accept argued that, there has been aerial accident of chiral analysis mostly due to exhausted fingerprints for being affianced in chiral labour (farmers), appropriately the charge to change the register. The aboriginal catechism is, will the backup of the annals stop bodies from agreeable in chiral labour? Will their fingerprint change brief because we are replacing the register? The acknowledgment is a big NO! May I repeat, adolescent citizens, that this is by far what appears to be their capital acumen for the backup of the register.
Interestingly, the EC accept argued that the new annals will acquiesce them to use facial acceptance technology for across-the-board affidavit for those who are clumsy to be accurate application fingerprint. This according to them will cure the aerial accident of chiral verification.
First of all we do not accept a botheration with that, alike admitting the fingerprint, Iris and added modalities are far added above to Facial Acceptance as appear by the British Broadcasting Corporation in a report, which appropriate that the abortion ante of facial acceptance are alike added arresting back it is deployed on atramentous population.
We however, accept a botheration with this bottomless fixation on the backup of the annals as a fit-for-all band-aid to all the problems of the EC.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the press,
Despite the inherent challenges in use of facial acceptance technology, our experts accept adumbrated that it can be congenital into the accepted register, abnormally as the accepted annals already contains aerial resolution photos of voters. This IT band-aid therefore, renders the altercation of the EC, to alter the accepted biometric aborigine annals so as to acquiesce for assimilation of the facial analysis arrangement mute, bottomless and unacceptable.
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press,
We authority the appearance that any attack to absorb an added cedi of Ghana’s tax payer’s money on a new annals will bulk to complete diffusion and causeless spending of bound accompaniment resources.
We advance our abutment for the advancement of the accepted annals and ambition to appeal that the EC considers extenuative the nation some assets for added amusing and bread-and-butter development projects.
Fellow Citizens, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Press,
Owing to the foregoing, we extend allurement to the accepted public, civilian society, moral society, the adept association and the media to accompany us in authoritative our choir heard adjoin the accommodation of the EC to abridge a new voters annals for the 2020 elections.
Join us in this accumulation movement to abide this clandestine calendar to abjure the peoples authorization at the amount of the tax payer.
The Jean Mensa led EC and the government charge be reminded that the ascendancy of Ghana resides in the people. At atomic the history of this country has provided abounding affirmation to the actuality that, the peoples’ ability back approved or suppressed erupts stronger in acerbity like fire.
We alarm on all to accompany the Y3NPINI DECLARATION beyond the country. The Inter-Party Attrition Adjoin the New Aborigine Annals shall be embarking on a alternation of accessible manifestations beyond the country, accordingly wherever you are, whatever you do, you can’t absence this befalling to be allotment of history.
On Saturday 11th January, 2020 we shall be in Tamale for a mega Tikusayi Korinfohili Demonstration. The advancing point will be the Tamale – Jubilee Park at 6am.
We shall chase this up with the Y3npini Affirmation in Kumasi on Tuesday 21st January, 2020 and acme it with the Wokp3n33 Affirmation in Accra on Tuesday 28th January, 2020.
Whilst at it, we shall additionally be embarking on a alternation of accumulation picketing exercise beyond the country.
Do not be larboard out in this celebrated movement. It is your responsibility, my responsibility, our aggregate albatross to ensure that the adherence and candor of our capitalism is adequate and preserved.
We charge accomplish accepted account to ensure that the EC does not booty the absolute nation on this careless and ambiguous aisle that has the abeyant to attempt this country into crisis. A peaceful and acknowledged acclamation is non-negotiable.
Long alive the Resistance!!
