Ghanaian musician and an ardent supporter of the National Democratic Congress NDC, Rex Omar, has been forced to provide further explanation to a statement he made on Facebook following public backlash.
Rex Omar took to his Facebook page and wrote that Nobody will go to court over the upcoming election, rather every issue will be settled on the street.
Netizens interpreted the post to be a call for any candidate with grievances following the election to resort to violence rather than the laid down procedures by the constitution for such a person to seek redress.
Responding to his post:
Benjamin Nii Sackey wrote “Elections are won at the polling so do your work well and tell the people what better policies you’ve for them and stop preaching violence.”
Richie Nii Hans wrote “1992 NPP wrote stolen verdict instead of court or fight. 2012 NPP went to court. I hope you are bringing your family to the streets as well.”
Mac Hamlet wrote “Eiiii…. this statement needs explanation paaa…. i hope the Nations securities have seen this. BNI HQ Ghana Police Service National Security Council Ghana”
These and other similar comments forced Rex Omar to make a second post to explain what he meant by his earlier statement.
“THE POLLING STATION IS THE STREET WHERE ALL THE ELECTION MATTERS WILL BE RESOLVED ! I repeat no one is going to any court!” He wrote
