National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay has accused the National Democratic Congress (NDC) of employing lies and propaganda to undermine the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.
It would be recalled that NDC Flagbearer John Dramani Mahama accused government of dispatching security personnel to to NDC strongholds to suppress people trying to register.
John Mahama was quoted as saying “The road President Akufo-Addo is taking our beautiful country through, using the military and party thugs to stop people from exercising their right to register and vote in the upcoming December elections, is dangerous and unacceptable.”
However, speaking at a press conference today, Freddie Blay debunked claims of registration center violence and military intimidation. According to him, those claims are mere fabrications.
“The NDC is desperately trying to undermine the simple and peaceful exercise of voters’ registration into one of ethnocentrism, outright fabrications, needless exaggerations, and old fashioned fear-mongering propaganda and inferior communists tactics…but the Electoral Commission, the only institution with the sole authority to determine elections has had to prove its mettle during this exercise,” Fredie Blay stated.
