The Minister for Information, Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah in an interview on TV3 has stated emphatically that no institution whether publicly owned or privately owned will be allowed to undertake any activity which will disrupt Government’s efforts at containing the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
“The Electoral Commission, like any other institution, be it private or public, would not be allowed to undertake any exercise that is likely to defeat government’s drive to contain the spread of coronavirus, he said.
“The president has been very, very clear on this, whether it is a private organization, ministries, departments, agencies, EC, NIA, nobody would be allowed to essentially breach these measures that are being put in place and put people in harm’s way,” the minister told TV3’s New Day on Monday.
Some citizens had expressed concern that the partial lockdown was lifted by the president because he wanted to create an avenue for the EC to compile its controversial new voter’s register.
Honourable Kojo Oppong Nkrumah dismissed those assertions while insisting that Government will not allow any exercise or activity that will compromise its efforts in mitigating the spread of the virus.
