» » Voter apathy as result of lack of confidence in politicians – Allotey Jacobs


Former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Bernard Kojo Allotey Jacobs, says the low turnout at the district level elections shows Ghanaians are losing confidence in politicians.

He said the just ended district level elections didn’t record up to 32% turnout because of voter apathy.

I said on this platform that the district level elections will experience voter apathy and truly truly I don’t believe 32% of voters throughout Ghana turned up to vote because Ghanaian voters have lost confidence in Ghanaian politicians ,” he told Accra based Peace FM, monitored by Adomonline.com.
He added that the confusion surrounding the referendum was another reason there was a low turnout.
People are giving so many excuses one being the fact that the day of the election it was a working day but I still insist that Ghanaians are losing confidence in politicians,” he said.
