The Deputy General Secretary of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidohu has accused the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) of attempting to disenfranchise NDC supporters in the Ashanti Region.
He claimed the NPP is scheming plans to delete names of NDC members from the voters’ register.
‘We have been following certain leads in the Ashanti Region and can now authoritatively say that, the NPP in its desperation to win power in the November elections at all cost through the back door has decided to disenfranchise as many NDC members as possible, specifically in the Suame constituency, where the Hon. Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu is the Member of Parliament (MP),’ he claimed.
Addressing Journalists in Kumasi, he said two NPP agents were busted in April 11, 2016 for expunging NDC members’ names from the voters’ register.
‘Agents of NPP have been caught red handed with incontrovertible evidence of the evil modus operandi of the so called NPP, they claim to be democrats yet they are the ones who do all the horrible things that make democracy walks on its head,’ he alleged.
According to him, the NPP is fraudulently creating a new voters’ register in their stronghold, thereby forcing names of NDC supporters from the national register.
‘They identify NDC members on the voters’ register, mark their names and write ‘dead’ by their names. NPP is compiling a dubious list of supposed dead persons that they intend to present to the EC to be deleted from the register,‘ he claimed.
