Progress in governance across Africa has stalled since 2011, with deteriorating safety and lack of economic opportunity overshadowing any gains made on the human rights front especially in resource-rich nations, a survey said on Monday.
Distinguished Guests, the Media, Ladies and Gentlemen, the Danquah Institute was invited by the coalition of pressure groups agitating for a new register to come and share with the general public the doubts we have raised over the last few years on the integrity of the voter registration that took place in 2012 and the way forward. We accepted the invitation and I am happy to say that this is my first public statement since my appointment by the governing board of the institute as its Executive Director on 1st September.
Ladies and Gentlemen, let me add a few words to the erudite case just made for scrapping the current register and compiling a new one for the 2016 polls.
