President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has recounted how security agencies unleashed and visited brutalities on harmless civilians 5 years ago while they were demonstrating and calling for a new and credible voters register.

“Five years ago, we had demonstrations in Accra calling for a new, credible register in which some citizens were maimed and brutalized. Indeed a citizen, young Justice Adzakuma, lost his eye and died last year.” The president said in a post on his Facebook Wall and sighted by BestNewsGH.com

The president continued that “Today, we are having peaceful demonstrations in Tamale, this time protesting against the decision of the Electoral Commission, whose constitutional remit it is to compile an electoral register, to have a new, improved register. Fortunately, in this new era, there are no casualties. God bless Ghana.

It will be recalled that the Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVC) demonstration during the John Dramani Mahama era turned bloody when security personnel zoomed in on the demonstrators and brutalized them, resulting in Justice Adzakuma, now late, losing one of his  eyes in the process. Notable among those who were brutalized BestNewsGH.com can recall, was Founder of Danquah Institute and Private Legal practitioner, Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko.
