Gabby on his social media described PNC Chairman, Bernard Mornah as “CEO of Tsooboi Inc. saying “ Ghana’s leading protestpreneur and CEO, Tsooboi Inc., Bernard Mornah, has registered to vote in December. What about you?”
Gabby in another Facebook post also said; “We must be making a lot of progress with voter registration when you see men of the feared Red Beret Brigade lining up to register. #RebelsRegister”

IPRAN had led several protests and petitioned several personalities including former presidents in a spirited effort to stop the Electoral Commission, Ghana (EC) from going ahead with its decision to compile the new register.
Comments made by Mr Mornah, who is also National Chairman of the People’s National Convention (PNC), prior to the take-off of the exercise landed him in trouble as he was invited for interrogation by the Criminals Investigations Department (CID) of the Ghana Police Service.
He was later granted a GH¢20,000 police enquiry bail.
At one of the meetings of IPRAN, Mr Mornah had threatened to disrupt any exercise that will be done in the name of compiling the new register.
But he was captured providing his details at a registration centre to get his name onto the new register in order to vote on December 7, 2020.
