Various leaders of the Fulani community in Ghana have threaten to sue the electoral commision if any of EC officials attempt stopping any Ghanaian Fulani from taking part in the ongoing voter registration exercise.
In a statement issued by by the group, Tabital Pulaaku International Ghana Chapter, and co-signed by General Secretary Yakubu Musa Barry and Organiser Ahmed Barry, representatives of the various political parties who will be policing the process should never attempt to deny any qualified Ghanaian Fulani the chance to go through the process.
The statement urged all qualified Ghanaian Fulanis to go out in their numbers to register.
“We are always intimidated, maltreated and always denied our right but not this time”, the group said in the statement, stating: “This is a strong warning to EC officials and individuals who will prevent Ghanaian Fulanis from registering or going through the process”.
“They will have to prove that in court”.
