Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosi Sen Monday, Mr. Boadu said there would be a constitutional crisis if it does not happen.

“Whether we like it or not, election 2020 would come off. There would be a constitutional crisis if it does not happen. Though there is Covid-19, there should be a way to make election 2020 happen. We have no excuse as a country,” he said.

It remains unclear whether the December 2020 elections would come on as the case count for deadly coronavirus keeps rising in Ghana, putting in limbo a planned compilation of new Voters Register by the Electoral Commission; the elections management body, however, maintains that it would go ahead with its plan.

To him, the government’s pro-activeness has really helped the Covid-19 fight and therefore he does not see the pandemic halting the elections.
