General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu has scolded the entire leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for accusing the ruling party and the National Identification Authority (NIA) of scheming to rig the 2020 general election.

According to him, the press conference by the opposition party, wherein the NDC sought to accuse the NPP of conniving with the NIA to rig the elections lacks logic.

Speaking on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show, John Boadu stated; “I want to see from the NDC's evidence why they think that the NPP and NIA are in cahoots to rig the 2020 general elections. Give me one logical sequence that you saw at their press conference that shows that the NPP and NIA want to rig the elections."

"What has the NIA registration of people in the Eastern Region during the partial lockdown got to do with the New Patriotic Party (NPP)? Does the NPP get 100 per cent of vote during elections in the Eastern Region?”

To him, the current crop of NDC leadership is a great disappointment to their members.

“The issue is that the current crop of NDC leadership is the worst ever; they have disappointed their members very well. The reason why I am saying this is that they could not establish any connivance between the NPP and NIA in their press conference,” he chastised.

Touching on the use of Ghana Cards for the new voter’s register and the NDC claims that a lot of Ghanaians will be disenfranchised in that regard, John Boadu accused the opposition party of shooting itself in the foot when it earlier directed all its members to boycott the registration for the Ghana Card.

“...the NIA will no matter what go to the stronghold of both the NPP and NDC because from the last election, the NDC had 6 seats in Upper West and the NPP had 5 seats; can you say that place is the stronghold of the NDC? Upper East, they had 12 seats and we had 3 seats and even in that place, will you say that is the stronghold of the NDC? In Northern Region, the NPP had 9 seats and the NDC also had 9 seats and in North East, both the NPP and NDC had 3 seats each. It is in Savanna region that the NDC had 6 seats and the NPP had a seat."

"...and so if you are embarking on such a registration, how can you say you are selectively or randomly registering only the strongholds of the NPP? This defiles logic; there is no sense in it their argument,” he jabbed.
