NDC Resisted New Voters Register Because There Was No Population Census – Mahama

Published

on


Flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama has stated that the party resisted the compilation of a new voters register because a national population census wasn’t carried out as has been done in previous times.

Speaking in a Facebook Live session, the former president explained that a national population census had always preceded a voters compilation exercise which gives an accurate data of the target population.

“Initially we had strong objections to compiling a new register. We believe that we could use the old register because by ages of registers it [the old register] was still relatively young and because we had not done the population census, we said that ‘why don’t we use this one and if we do the population census we will have an accurate data and then we could go ahead and do it,” he said.

Mr Mahama also admitted that the registration had been largely successful and had met their expectations.

“I think the exercise met our expectations… [Over 16 million registrants] is within the range that one would have expected.”

Akufo-Addo Can’t Protect You, Kick Him Out – Agalga Tells Ghanaians

Published

on


Former Deputy Interior Minister under the erstwhile Mahama administration, James Agalga, has urged Ghanaians to kick out President Akufo-Addo in the December 2020 polls.

According to him, the continuous lawlessness by secessionist group, Western Togoland and government’s inability to tackle it depicts a sense of insecurity glaring at the face of the President.

“As a political party, we have always sounded a caution that government’s failure to provide the security of our citizenry is worrying which is why we are asking that this incompetent government be changed in the first place. The promises are so much, particularly in the security sector, they made so many promises and noise about insecurity in our country. Today, insecurity is staring boldly at Akufo-Addo’s face and yet it appears he has no solutions to deal with these worrying developments,” he told GhanaWeb.

“So, we are urging Ghanaians to kick out President Akufo-Addo to enable better managers of our national security to take over,” he pleaded with Ghanaians,” he added.

I Laugh When NDC’s Running Mate Says Her Voter’s ID Was Duplicated, Is She More Important Than Rawlings? Koku Anyidoho Fires Again

Published

on


Former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Koku Anyidoho has fired another ‘missile’ at his party, this time directed at the Party’s running mate, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.

Koku Anyidoho, who has for some time now been virtually ostracized from the NDC, has consistently fired direct and indirect jabs at some of the Party’s leaders who he claims are trying to take over the party.

His latest jab, in the form of a Tweet read, “I laugh when I hear that the Running Mate of the Umbrella says her Voter ID was duplicated: Is she more important than the FOUNDER of the NDC?”.

His post comes a day after the NDC flagbearer, John Mahama addressed a press conference, in which he revealed that the Party’s running mate is among the thousands of people whose names have allegedly been taken out of the voter’s register, or have had their voter’s ID numbers duplicated.

It is unclear why Mr. Anyidoho roped in the name of the NDC founder to make his comparison.

‘There Is A Grand Scheme To Rig The Elections’ – Suhuyini Alleges

Published

on


Member of Parliament for Tamale North Constituency, Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini has accused the Electoral Commission of deliberately scheming to rig the December 2020 polls in favour of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to him, the consistent flaws that have been associated with the work of the EC from the voters’ registration to exhibition exercise, is a clear indication that they are conspiring to rig the elections.

According to him, the short code that has been instituted by the EC to aid electorates verify their names is inaccurate, citing instances where people who had their names confirmed via the short code could not find their names when they went to verify in person.

“Do not rely on that short code because I know people who have checked with the short code and got feedback that their names were on the register but when they went to the polling station their names were not on the register.

“They got feedback using the short code that confirmed that they were on the register but they got to the polling stations itself and their names were not on the register. So let nobody rely on those short codes. Please make the time even if you do not have it to go and check to be sure that your name is on the register,” he said.

He added “All of these feed into the wieldy held perception that there is a grand scheme to rig the elections . On is major be an accident, two is a coincidence but you cannot tell me that three is not deliberate . When you begin to have so many reflags that are not dismissible , you cant easily dismiss them you don’t just continue to describe them as red flags .

“If you have a pattern of unexplainable happening especially around an election it will be fair for you to assume and conclude that there must be a deliberate attempt to either frustrate , to suppress of to rig.”
