The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has described this year’s voter registration as “the most violent” conducted in the fourth Republic.

The Party said the exercise witnessed two cases of murder—Silas Wulo Chameh, a young teacher graduate in Banda; and Kofi Stephen, in the Dormaa West, all in the Bono Region.

The General Secretary of NDC, Mr Johnson Asiedu Nketia, at a press conference in Accra on the violent conduct of the just ended voter registration exercise, expressed worry about “brutal attacks” on its members and called on authorities to expedite action on the cases.

He appealed to Ghanaians to join the fight to demand for justice for innocent persons who lost their lives during the registration exercise.

The NDC General Secretary alleged that the exercise saw several incidences of brutalities including gunshot injuries and attacks on Alhaji Collins Dauda, Member of Parliament for Asutifi South and Alhaji Bawa, MP for Ejura Sekyere Odumase.

Mr Nketia said the violent incidences came on the heels of the “violent by-elections” at Ayawaso West Wuogon and underscored the need for stakeholders to work towards peace ahead of the General Election.

He called on civil society organizations and religious bodies to speak against acts of intimidation and violence to prevent any such occurrence in the December polls.

  1. Before the registration exercise, I remember, the NDC promised Ghanaians that they would do everything to stop the exercise from being carried out. So whom are they blaming now for the violence? The security establishments will never sit aloof for some miscreants to create confusion in the country. Ghanaian politicians, please, let us have some peace; you are not the only set of people living in the country. God is watching, selfish and greedy people.
