Former president John Agyekum Kufuor has openly supported the compilation of a new voters' register for the upcoming December 2020 general elections.
According to Kufuor, most people on the register got onto it using dubious means to get their identification cards (ID).
Speaking on the issue on Onua TV’s Maakye, the former president said, the dubious means make the voters' register unclean.

"We agree that some people are not Ghanaians but they are on the voter’s register. We should do it again because it is not good. There are so many people now on the voter's register and I agree to the new voter’s register. If we get a clean register to vote, it will help,” he said.
According to former president Kufuor, the register still contains names of persons who registered with NHIS cards and drivers’ licence despite a directive from the Supreme Court to get those names expunged from the register.
