deletion of NHIS voters wont guarantee NPP Win – Pratt
Kwesi Pratt has questioned the logic of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for insisting on the deletion of the NHIA card registrants from the voters register.
Speaking on Radio Gold’s “Alhaji and Alhaji” programme, Mr Pratt wondered what is motivating the NPP to celebrate over the Supreme Court order to the Electoral Commission to expunge names of NHIA card holders from the register.
According to him, the expunction is not an automatic win for the NPP.
The senior journalist noted that Ghanaians have over the years have become very discerning and so will not be flattered by the NPP’s gospel for the names to be deleted.
He explained that Ghanaians have aspirations and needs that must be met by the NPP or the government or any other political party.
To him, there are pressing needs such as seeking solutions to the energy and water problems in the country which will significantly impact on the lives of Ghanaians.
Mr. Pratt stressed that the propaganda games played by political actors in the country will not augur well for the nation, adding that the leaders should take the plight of Ghanaians into major consideration.
“I’m finding it very [very] difficult to understand the celebratory mood in the NPP. What is happening? Who says that with the deletion of those who registered with NHIA cards, their names from the register; NPP is going to win the elections? Who says?
“Our people are becoming far more sophisticated. Our people are becoming far more discerning and so on. And that these little games – propaganda games – will not take us far,” he said.
