General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has become a laughing stock on social media after his misinterpretation of the Supreme Court’s ruling on the new voters’ register.
The apex court on Thursday June 25, dismissed the NDC’s writ seeking to stop the Electoral Commission from rejecting the current voters’ card as evidence to obtain a new card in the upcoming new voter registration exercise.
Asiedu Nketiah, however, after the Supreme Court’s ruling told journalists that the Court had ruled in favour of the NDC.
“The Supreme Court has granted our request for the inclusion of the existing voter card … for the compilation of the register.
“This is the most substantive decision for which we came to court so we will get back to office and we will address a full blown press conference on the consequential matters arising.
“We feel vindicated because the court itself in an earlier ruling has clearly stated that the possession of the existing voter’s ID card means that the holder is a citizen of Ghana who is qualified to be registered to exercise his or her powers so the court couldn’t have gone back on its own earlier ruling,” the NDC general secretary claimed.
However, the interpretation of the ruling became clearer moments after his claim and this made him fell victim to massive trolling on twitter.
