Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has attributed the New Patriotic Party’s seeming support for the compilation of the new register to what he describes as bad governance, broken promises, unbridled nepotism and massive corruption that has defined the regime.

According to the National Democratic Congress legislator, the NPP is ‘scared to death’ by the same old voter’s register that brought them to power because of how much they have disappointed Ghanaians and the fear that the existing register may not grant them the victory they seek in 2020.

“Never in the entire history of the world has a political party been so scared to death of the very voters register that brought it to power. One would have expected that the NPP will act as the apostles of the credibility of the current register so as to uphold their own legitimacy but clearly they are haunted by a far bigger existential threat.

“That existential threat emanates from the bad governance, broken promises, unbridled nepotism and massive corruption that has defined this regime.So what the NPP really fears is the anger and deep disappointment of the Ghanaian people and not a so-called discredited voters register.By scheming to suppress votes and to disenfranchise many more, the NPP is rather generating more anger and incurring the wrath of an already disenchanted people.”

His comments come days after the Supreme Court in a unanimous verdict declared that the Electoral Commission has the green light to compile a new voter’s register with the Ghanaian passport and the Ghana card as the primary source documents.

By this verdict, the NDC lost its case against the EC challenging the CI 126 based on which the EC intends to conduct the elections.

Taking to his social media, Mr Okudzeto urged all who supported their case against the EC to be motivated instead feeling down by the Court’s verdict.

“To the forces seeking change, instead of feeling down by the setback at the Supreme Court, we should rather be motivated by the morbid fear of the NPP for the people who have been at the receiving end of their inimical policies.We should also be motivated by the impressive number of Ghanaians and groups including chiefs, university lecturers, doctors and other health workers, organized labour, the clergy, CSOs and a host of others who publicly supported and aligned with the compelling case the NDC made.

“We should also not be oblivious that there is always a political price to pay for intransigence and treating the masses with contempt.That price will be in the minds of all those who spoke out and the many appalled silent observers when they risk their lives to register from Tuesday as our Flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has pointed out”
