Biometric registration is not cancerous – Aspiring MP Accra, Jan. 24, GNA – Ms Sarah Adwoa Safo, New Patriotic Party Parliamentary Aspirant for Dome/ Kwabenya Constituency on Tuesday urged the Muslim community to take active part in the upcoming national biometric registration exercise slated tentatively for March.

“The only way you can exercise your inalienable franchise as enshrined in universal adult suffrage of our constitution is to register. This will give you the mandate to determine whom you would like the destiny of the nation to be entrusted to for the next four years.

“The registration exercise is so paramount and crucial to every Ghanaian who has attained the voting age and therefore, eligible to vote,” Ms Safo stated during an interaction with the Muslim Communities at Dome.

Ms Safo who used the occasion to formally introduce herself to the Muslim community, decried how people were waging propaganda by spreading misleading information to the effect that the biometric exercise was cancerous and that people should not take part in it.   


Biometric registration is not cancerous as is being peddled by some propaganda pundits who have the strongest belief that any free and fair elections will not go in their favour and therefore have taken to these kind of tactics to discourage the people from taking part in this national exercise.

“The biometric registration and the verification have for some time now engaged media discussion as consensus has indicated it is the only viable means by which one could be very certain that free and fair elections could be conducted,” she noted.

The Dome/ Kwabenya NPP Parliamentary aspirant asked Ghanaians to be wise like the proverbial snake so they could see through the gentlemanly gait of the ruling Government.

She said Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, the NPP flag-bearer for Election 2012 had carefully developed a programme of action that would move Ghana from a raw material production country to an industrialised country and this she believed would affect every Ghanaian positively.

Ms Safo noted “Nana Akufo Addo’s resolve to make second-cycle education free will not be a mirage”.

The Chief Imam of the Muslim Community, Sheikh Mohamed Suleiman congratulated Ms Safo on her victory i the primaries to represent the NPP in the constituency for Election 2012.
