Some three (3) branch executives of the opposition National Democratic Congress were arrested by the police on Wednesday, 1 July 2020 for possessing registration forms of the Electoral Commission and distributing same.
They were allegedly distributing the forms to prospective registrants to fill. They are being kept in the custody of the regional police headquarters. They were picked up at the Mamponhene registration centre within the Akwatialine area while distributing the forms.
The Asawase constituency communication officer of the NDC, Alhaji Yakubu Tony Aidoo, told Kumasi FM’s Elisha Adarkwa in an interview that the party is doing everything it can to secure freedom for the three suspects.
It is unclear what might actually have led to the arrest of the 3 executives since the EC itself has given Ghanaians the opportunity to download the registration forms online even before visiting the centres.
