According to him, his outfit has always justified reasons why a new voters register must be compiled, unlike the NDC who have always engineered in propaganda in justifying the reasons to maintain the old register.
Speaking to Kwaku Dawuro on Anopa Nkomo on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7, John Boadu said, he urged Ghanaians to rally behind the EC who are campaigning for the change of register and see the call as being in the interest of the entire nation.
