Nana Boakye, NPP National Youth Organizer has asked the NDC not to blame the NIA or EC over the party’s fears that there will be a low turnout of their members and supporters during the registration exercise.
According to him, the NDC have contributed to their own woes and should see themselves as their own enemies.
He explained to host Kwami Sefa Kayi on ”Kokrokoo” on Peace FM that the leadership of NDC asked their members not to partake in the NIA exercise; so if the members have obeyed the instructions and do not have the NIA cards, they should have themselves to blame.
”When you, yourself, you have bastardized the process. You have told your supporters not to be part of the process; something that is a national exercise. The NIA is established by an Act of Parliament from 2007…It operated under NDC’s 8 years of rule. Something established by an Act of Parliament, you have told your people that you’re not going to take part…I worship NPP. Ghana first but I serve the NPP. I work for the NPP; so if I tell my youth that do not do this, I’m telling you they’re going to comply. So, when a whole General Secretary, a whole party Chairman, you tell your people ‘don’t take part in the exercise’; then we go and do it and we record a low turnout, then you waste money to organize a press conference to tell Ghanaians that they’re going to be disenfranchised because a lot of people did not take part in the NIA registration”.
He exposed the hypocrisy of the NDC saying ”you are the same person who gave a bad order that the people should not take part and today, you turn round to come and blame NIA for low turnout”.
”…how can people rise to that level of hypocrisy and that we descend down?” he exclaimed.
