Rawlings reveals how Kufuor scuttled his family planning campaign with ‘mo nwo ba’ crusade

General News of Sunday, 5 July 2020Source: My News GHRawlings reveals how Kufuor scuttled his family planning campaign with ‘mo nwo ba’ crusadeplay videoFormer Presidents Rawlings and KufuorFormer President Jerry John Rawlings has accused ex-President John Kufuor of having undermined his campaign for Ghanaians to practice family planning, stressing that while he passionately appealing to Ghanaians to properly plan their families, the latter was also busy encouraging them to give birth to more children notwithstanding their economic circumstances. In a yet to be fully aired interview with Kwaku Sakyi-Addo, Mr Rawlings expressed frustration at the scuttling of his family planning campaign by Kufour when he (Rawlings) was President. He noted that he eagerly campaigned for family planning because a lack of it undermined development by starving government of much-needed resources for economic development at the time. “…And mind you, when I am talking on subjects persistently, like family planning, family planning…it was a subject I always spoke about … because a lack of family planning virtually undermines your development programme; you’re creating starvation for yourself, of resources, et cetera. So when I am, even during the campaign period, advocating for family planning, and there is in the next corner there's another politician saying: “mo nwo ba [give birth to children], mo nwo ba, mo nwo ba,” that’s what’s his name, Kufour for you!

A Flawed New Voters’ Register Is Still More Credible Than the Old Register

Which is precisely why Dr. Agyenim Boateng is reported by the media to be counseling the Jean Adukwei Mensa-headed IEC not to discard the old National Voters’ Register but, instead, use the latter as a standby, in case the compilation of the New Voters’ Register does not result in the desired outcome (See “Keep the Old Voters’ Register as a Standby – EC Advised” HappyGhana.com / Ghanaweb.com 7/1/20). Absolutely nobody thought, going in, that the compilation of the New Voters’ Register would proceed without a glitch or any mechanical malfunctions, such as the nonsequential churning out of the serial numerical tags of registrants. Ultimately, however, the outcome of the New Voters’ Register will be more credible and far more reflective of the numerical strength of eligible bona fide Ghanaian citizens in ways not reflected by the old or present Voters’ Register, which is criminally jampacked with the names of foreign nationals from the West African Subregion. The leaders of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have been hell-bent on maintaining the Supreme Court-proscribed old Voters’ Register because they are convinced that their perennially poor administrative performance has not endeared them to the overwhelming majority of eligible Ghanaian voters. This is what the compilation of the new National Biometric Voters’ Register is squarely and unreservedly about and must be soberly envisaged as such.
