The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has emphatically stated that the problem of the National Democratic Congress is not about the compilation of a new register but their current flagbearer.
“NDC’s problem is their criminal flagbearer and not new register”, Mr. Bernard Antw-Boasiako said on the Wontumi Morning Show.
The NPP Chairman popularly known as Chairman Wontumi explained that the leaders of the NDC knew they had elected “criminal” in the person of Mr. John Mahama as their “flagbearer” and were not happy he would be leading them into the 2020 elections.
He reiterated that the NDC’s problem is their “criminal flagbearer” and not the Electoral Commission’s decision to compile a new register.
Chairman Wontumi explained that “even in 2016, the NDC had the old register to their advantage but the NPP won. The NDC had the Chairperson of the EC and IGP on their side but we still won. John Mahama had all the money but he lost. They know their problem is their criminal flagbearer and not the new register”.
NDC opposes new register
The leadership of the NDC through their General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has given an indication that they will create chaos to stop the EC from compiling a new voter register for the 2020 general elections.
According to the NDC, the EC’s motive will not promote a free and fair election and possibly disenfranchise Ghanaians in the upcoming general elections.
In an interview on Accra based radio station which was monitored by Wontumionline.com, the NDC scribe stated that “we are all part of the framers of the constitution and have placed the EC in charge of our elections in order to maintain the country’s democracy so that whoever becomes president is the only one duly elected by Ghanaians. Therefore if in the course of your duty we feel that you are not doing what Ghanaians are paying you to do, every Ghanaian has the right to say it as it is”.
