EC conniving with NIA to suppress votes in NDC strongholds-NDC alleges
The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) claims there is “a ploy to rig the 2020 general elections in concert with the National Identification Authority.
The party made the claim at a press conference today [Thursday]
It’s National Chairman Samuel Ofosu Ampofo alleged that the decision of the Electoral Commission to push for the Ghana Card, birth certificate and Passport as the primary documents required to register during the voters’ registration exercise is part of a grand scheme to rig the 2020 elections in favour of the governing NPP.
Mr. Ampofo in his address alleged that the decision by the NIA to increase the number of registration centres in the Ashanti region but keep few in the strongholds of the NDC is part of the voter suppression agenda.
“The President seeing defeat staring glaringly at him, he is in conjunction with the Jean Mensa led EC and the Ken Attafuah led NIA desperately scheming to rig the 2020 elections and hold on to power at all cost.
“Not even the unusual circumstances we find ourselves in which requires that we pull together for our collective survival as a nation are enough to deter the actors of this plot from their ungodly act.”
