The Executive Director for Danquah Institute Richard Ahiagbah has allegedly described the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) as a violent political party because its previous revolutionary activities are a vindication that the NDC is indeed violent.
Making reference to the history of the NDC he indicated that “the NDC is a violent party and they ruled the country with violence, greed, and autocracy some years back. The NDC was created and established through violence. So it is evident that the NDC always wants to take over power with violence and authority”.
The comments of the Director of the Danquah Institute follow the chaotic warning from the former President John Dramani Mahama to the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensa, over its intended decision to compile a new voter’s register ahead of the 2020 general election.
Speaking in an exclusive interview with Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM,
Richard Ahiagbah noted that, during the era of Charlotte Osei as the
Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, the current biometric voter’s
register was compiled so what has changed today that the EC cannot
compile a new voter’s register?
“Is John Mahama now a Constitution that the EC has to go according to?” he quizzed,
adding that, “nothing will happen in Ghana and should the election turn violent in Ghana here then Mahama and the NDC will be held responsible. It is just fear Mahama and the NDC are putting into Ghanaians and nothing will happen”.
In a bid to ensure a free and fair general election 2020, the Executive Director for Danquah Institute, therefore, called for a new voter register with the explanation that the current one is not credible and bloated with suspected Togolese nationals on the electoral roll.
He therefore urged Ghanaians to go in their numbers to partake in the voter registration exercise in order to have the legal right to exercise their franchise when the general elections are due.
