“The impression after the statement I made on some television networks was that I had stated the position of the National Chief which is not the case. The Chief Imam has not taken sides on the issue of the voters’ register,” he added.

Sheikh Aremeyaw continuing, said “the chief imam is a member of the Eminent Persons Advisory Committee of the Electoral Commission and so it would be wrong on his part to present a position on the subject contrary to that of the Committee.”
