Technical Advisor of the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, Dr. Eric Oduro Osae has said the referendum scheduled for December 17,2019 has not been cancelled or suspended as it is being speculated.
He said this when the Coalition of CSOs on the National Referendum and election of MMDCEs held a one day media training workshop at the Crystal Rose Ambassador Hotel in Kumasi Thursday November 28 for 34 media personnel from selected 15 radio stations in the Ashanti, Bono, Bono East, Western and Western North regions.
The coalition comprises the Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-GHANA), Centre for Local Governance Advocacy (CLGA) and the Institute for Democratic Governance (IDEG)
Dr. Osae said “there has not been any communication from the Ministry to that effect, the referendum has not been cancelled so the general public should disregard any such information”.
He charged the media personnel to take advantage of the workshop in order to educate their listeners rather than polluting them.
