The Omanhene of Badu Traditional Council Nana Yiadom Boakye II, has labeled the position of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on the compilation of a new voter register as an act of hypocrisy that demonstrates inconsistencies.
According to Nana, the position of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) that the commission can only compile the register of voters once at the inception of the Constitution and not on multiple occasions is an interpretation by the party to serve its ‘parochial interest’ and not a proper appreciation of the 1992 Constitution as a whole.
Nana Yiadom Boakye II, made the call when he was addressing the regional party executives of the New Patriotic Party in the Bono Region at his palace at Badu in the Tain District on Tuesday.
The hierarchy of the New Patriotic Party in the Bono Region led by Kwame Baffoe Abronye DC is embarking on 3 days sensitisation visit to the various paramount chiefs (Nananom) in the region over the new voters registration exercise.
The paramount chief said Aseidu Nketia and his National Democratic Congress Party are deliberately causing confusion over the compilation of new voters register with constant shifting in stance which is pure demonstration of hypocrisy and inconsistencies on their part.
Nana said the deliberate attacks from the NDC on the Electoral Commission is an attempt to subject the EC to public ridicule but he says the electoral commission should always be guided by their professional principles and not to be sway by any political party on parochial interest drive.
Nana said the NDC chairman Mr Ofosu Ampofo has from day one hatched a diabolic plan to destabilise the country which he is been investigated on and therefore the entire Badu Traditional Council and its environs will support the electoral commission and government decisions which will benefit the country.
Chairman Abronye in his remarks said the new voters register will not disenfranchise any qualified individual but it’s a constitutional mandate which needs to be uphold and therefore Ghanaians should not fall foul to the lies and propaganda of the opposition NDC over the new voters register.
