The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has come out in support of Member of Parliament (MP) Collins Dauda from the Asutifi South constituency following his arrest due to an incident at the Kukuom registration center over the weekend.

Contrary to the Ghana Police Service’s statement implicating the MP in disturbances at the registration center, the NDC asserts that Mr. Dauda was not present at the scene during the reported fracas.

In a statement released on Monday and signed by Sammy Gyamfi, the National Communications Officer for NDC, the party criticized the police for their handling of the situation and condemned the arrest.

“The NDC condemns in no uncertain terms the unprofessional haste of the Ghana Police Service to publish the so-called arrest of the Member of Parliament for Asutifi South, and create the impression all over the media as though he has committed a crime. For emphasis, Hon. Collins Dauda has committed no crime.

“The allegation by the Police that he was involved in some disturbances at the ongoing voter registration in Kukuom is palpably false and must be treated with the contempt it deserves.”

The NDC emphasized that Collins Dauda was actively monitoring the registration exercise in his constituency and was not near the Kukuom incident, which occurred in the Asunafo South constituency.
“We wish to place on record that, at no point was the Member of Parliament for Asutifi South, Hon. Collins Dauda present at the Kukuom registration center on Saturday, 11th May, 2024.

“Contrary to the claim by the Ghana Police Service, Hon. Collins Dauda was busily monitoring the ongoing registration exercise in his Constituency, Asutifi South and was nowhere near the incident at Kukuom which is located in the Asunafo South constituency.”

According to the NDC, the disturbances were caused by thugs allegedly affiliated with the New Patriotic Party (NPP), who threatened accredited NDC agents, police officers, and observers, disrupting the registration process.
“These hooded NPP thugs who were led by one “Anointing”, threatened the accredited NDC agent, Police Officers and other observers, insisting that they will not allow the first-time voters to be registered. The attacks persisted from 10:00am until 3:00pm on that fateful day,” the statement added.
