“Let’s forget Election 2020 if Coronavirus persists” – Odike, founder of UPP

According to the Founder of the United Progressive Party (UPP) Akwasi Addai Odike, it will be prudent we have no election come December 7, 2020, if the novel coronavirus persists.

Odike based his statement on alleged information from WHO which reveals that a vaccine for the novel Coronavirus can only be possible in the next 12 months or more.

“I’m depending on that information to conclude that, per the way things that are happening, even the calendar of the Electoral Commission has been affected. Currently, the time table the EC is supposed to work with will not be effective. If God does not deliver us from this lockdown and the virus continues to spread before December, then it will be difficult for us to conduct elections”, Mr. Odike said in a radio discussion on Kumasi base radio Angel Fm on Tuesday.

“In an unlikely event when we get to September it will be impossible for EC to conduct the elections”, he added.

Speaking on several platforms Mr. Odike has urged lawyers and the Supreme Court to interpret the law to Ghanaians before the date comes in order to avoid confusion among the various political parties.

“I will plead on constitutional lawyers, Supreme Court to come out early to explain the constitution to us”, he pleaded.
