Assin Central Member of Parliament for the New Patriotic Party, Kennedy Agyapong has laid bare some plans by the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to cause confusion during the voters’ registration exercise.
Kennedy Agyapong is convinced that once the Electoral Commission (EC) does not adhere to the NDC’s demands to halt the compilation of a new register in the build-up to the 2020 election, the NDC will, among other things, infiltrate the EC’s electoral officers and deliberately create challenges for the biometric system.
Speaking on Oman FM on Thursday, the firebrand MP alleged that at a meeting convened by the party’s leaders, including Chairman Ofosu-Ampofo, the NDC has planned to use its stalwarts disguised as ‘Fulani herdsmen’ to cause mayhem with each other’s identity to disrupt the process
“They said if they embark on numerous demonstrations and the EC doesn’t understand and still goes ahead with the registration, they will bring people, disguised as Fulani herdsmen and create confusion with the identity of each other at the registration centres across all the NPP strongholds but where they are taking this issue, we will also beat them up. If the NDC plans on causing mayhem, we will meet them equally because we’ve been too gentle. It looks like even though we are in Government, they are dictating what they want for us to accept. Muntaka was part of that meeting, Ofosu Ampofo, Akamba and a few others and they met in Kumasi on 23rd of this month, around 1 am. I hope the EC and the National Security Minister, Kan Dapaah will listen to this and be vigilant,” he charged.
Secondly, the NDC plans to influence the selection of returning officers who will ‘slow down the EC’s machine down so that people will not be able to register,’ Kennedy Agyapong alleged further.
