EC And NIA Are The Causes Of Registration Irregularities – NPP Secretary

Published

on


Greater Accra Regional Secretary for the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nii Odarlai Parker has blamed officials of the Electoral Commission (EC) for the many irregularities troubling the ongoing voter registration exercise.

According to Nii Odarlai, the registration has faced challenges at various centers due to the commission’s employment of “inept and untrustworthy” officials to conduct the exercise.

Speaking on Onua FM on Tuesday, August 4, the regional NPP executive claimed that most electoral officers engaged by the EC to conduct the ongoing registration exercise are politicians who are there to do the bidding of their respective parties.

He alleged that most EC officials take money from political parties in getting ineligible applicants registered.

The NPP regional secretary also took a swipe at the National Identification Authority (NIA) for not being apt in completing its registration, fingering the authority’s boss, Prof. Ken Attafuah for his abysmal performance thus far while stating that the EC could have used the NIA registration data for the new voter register if the exercise had been well conducted.

He told host Anokyewaaba Adwoa Serwaa that until this generation becomes patriotic, Ghana would continue to be underdeveloped and have challenges in every election year.

Kennedy Agyapong Begs Supreme Court To Stop Contempt Case Against Him

Published

on


Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong has prayed the Supreme Court to stop a contempt proceeding initiated by the Accra High Court against him.

This comes after the politician described a judge as ‘stupid’ and threatened to deal with him.

Summoned to appear before the Accra High Court on Monday to justify why he should not be punished for the insults, Kennedy Agyapong failed to show up with his lawyers insisting he was not personally served with the initial writ of summons which was issued on September 9, 2020.

Lawyers of the legislator filed a judicial review application to the Supreme Court seeking to impede the Accra High Court from hearing the contempt case brought against him.

They further want the Supreme Court to reject as invalid, the order of summons for him to appear before the High Court.

In an affidavit, Kennedy Agyapong insisted that the court (Land Court 12) which summoned him has no jurisdiction over the case because his comments were against a different judge in a different case pending before Labour Court 2.

According to him, he has apologised to the judge who summoned him and for his disrespectful behaviour.

Parts of his affidavit reads; “The words uttered which I deem uncomplimentary and I have since apologized were not directed at the Court, presided over by his Lordship Amos Wuntah Wuni, the Court is not seized with jurisdiction to order the applicant to appear and to answer why he should not be severely punished for contempt of court.”
