Ahiagbah denies allegation of impropriety in relation to voter registration

Richard Ahiagbah — Communications Director of the NPP

By Doreen Ampofo

Director of Communications of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Ahiagbah, has refuted claims made by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), that he attempted to register in the ongoing limited voter registration exercise at Ketu South, despite evidence that he voted in the 2020 elections.

In a video on social media, Mr Ahiagbah is seen at a registration centre trying to talk to electoral officers, with onlookers insisting that he will not be allowed to register.

The Deputy National Communication Officer of the NDC, Malik Basintale, in an interview with an Accra based radio station stated that the NDC will not tolerate any attempt by the NPP to use dubious means to steal the mandate of Ghanaians.

He said he had challenged the process and called on the Police to arrest Mr Ahiagbah immediately, or they would initiate a citizen arrest.

But in a statement, Mr. Ahiagbah refuted the claims describing them as false and unfounded. He sought to clarify the sequence of events, explaining that he has been a registered voter in Ketu South since 2000 and encountered an administrative error during the 2023 limited voter registration exercise.

He said he was at the registration centre where he registered in 2020 to fix the EC’s administrative error, “but I was met with a frivolous and obstructive challenge to his eligibility”.
