Deputy National NADMO Coordinator; Joseph Yammin has accused the incumbent MP for Adansi Asokwa of encouraging minors to register.
Mr. Yammin says he is surprised that “KT Hammond, a member of a party that has complained several times and demanded a new voters’ register due to their claim that the current one is bloated with minors would rather be giving ages to students of Bowesango Senior High School to register.”
Yammin made those allegations on Angel fm Morning Show and wondered why an MP would want to jeopardize the lives of young people knowing very well it would affect them some day. He said the kids will realize their mistakes when after school they want to join any of the forces that are now recruiting through the Internet and then get disqualified because the software when run through the EC data base brings out two dates of birth. He added that some will also “smell pepper when they decide to travel outside the country and different birth dates pop up”.
Joseph Yammin stated confidently that this was going to be the end of KT Hammond as a Member of Parliament because the people of Adansi Asokwa are convinced that their own lawyer Evans Amankwa; the NDC Parliamentary Candidate was the right person for the constituency.
“I am in the constituency and know what we are doing so KT and Nana Addo shouldn’t destroy the future of these kids just to satisfy themselves knowing very well they were losing the elections. No matter how hard KT and Nana try, President Mahama and lawyer Evans Amankwa will win the elections”, he emphasized.
He again advised parents to advise their wards against registering before the legal registration age since the repurcussions are many and serious.
