Drama At Ministers’ Vetting
Members of the Western Regional Branch of “Nana For President 2012 (NAFOP), a youth wing of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), say some people in Sekondi-Takoradi are clandestinely replicating the Biometric Voter Identification (ID) cards of unsuspecting people in the area.

According to them, intelligence gathered indicates that the alleged heinous exercise was ongoing at Darkokrom, a suburb of Kojokrom and other communities in the metropolis.

Members of the regional NAFOP noted that they had officially reported the illegal activities to the regional police command. They stressed that the police gave the assurance that they would collaborate with the Electoral Commission (EC) to investigate the matter for the appropriate actions to be taken.

Addressing a press conference in Takoradi yesterday, Sampson Nimako Darko, Regional Coordinator of NAFOP, alleged that the EC was collaborating with miscreants perpetrating the heinous acts.

He could not fathom why as many as 205,438 and 92,886 ballot papers were rejected in the first and second rounds respectively of the 2008 general elections. “What were the EC and its trained officials at the polling stations doing for this number of votes to go waste,” he quizzed.

The NAFOP Regional Coordinator claimed about 80 per cent of the 2008 rejected ballot papers were for the presidential candidate of the NPP’s Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

Mr. Darko, popularly called “Sampson K” noted that it was obvious the integrity and neutrality of the EC had been compromised ahead of the 2012 general elections and that most Ghanaians were disappointed with the alleged nefarious activities of the EC.

He therefore called on other opposition political parties to join hands and ask the EC to properly ascertain the details of voters at the polling stations.

“In order to have peaceful and credible elections, we enjoin the EC to carry out its constitutional mandate by educating the electorate and the political parties as to the modalities of the elections and to remain neutral,” he noted.
